Playing Us Close

They say women love hard and are emotional creatures. They say that woman get attached and hate to let go. The irony in both statements is that while men might not allow themselves to get "caught up" unless they purposely send you off, they never want to see you go. They want to keep you around because they fear if you go that door is closed and they can't get you back. Its actually quite selfish when you think about it. Why try to to keep a woman close if you cannot offer her all that she needs? Why try to keep a woman close if your desire to keep her near is derived from mere greed and selfishness, Why try to keep a woman close when even you know she is better off without you then with you?

By "playing us close" does the man then change and rectify some of the woman previous gripes? Or, is it just a lame speech that will pretty much result in more of the same?

A man will not let go unless its a decision that he has come to on his own; however, while that man is contemplating what to do, its up to the woman to take action and decide what is best for her. During the era of strong black woman like Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey, "playing us close" in 09' is just not good enough anymore. Fellas, step up or move out the way.


  1. Great piece. I think you said it all at the end though. We don't have to put up with it any longer. We have choices and it is up to us to determine how we are handled. When more sisters take control, guys will realize that they must step-it up. So let's tell another sister and change the way this game is played!

  2. hmm this explains a lot. Great read. Thanks for following
