Women In Love
Philip Claude Andermann
Not subservient because they are expected to care for a man,
Rather, filled with the power to possess and control men
by their strength to care for them.
Their power to seduce.
Their strength to face the unpleasant situations.
Yet filled with a desire to be possessed and controlled by a man.
Wondering why a man always wants to know where she is.
Hypocritically wanting to know where her man is.
So often lonely in seeking emotional intimacy.
Strong in knowing she is not alone in this.
Filled with a competition to be better than other women.
Women connected by their emotional bonds.
The natural bonds of stages of maturation, of aging, that women also share with each other.
Why is it so difficult for men to show love toward others?
Is it because men don't know what it is to be a woman with the desire to look after others and her daughter?
She feels closest to him when she sees he understands or feels what a woman is.
Behold the power of the human mind
in regard to the connections that it creates and upholds between people!
