Respect, he said
is what I need.
Trust my lead
and have my back.
Accept me
the way I am.
Appreciate my effort.
Let me know that
I am first on your list.
And sex, he said.

Love, she said
is what I need.
Give me your time
and undivided attention.
Know my needs
without my guidance.
Tell me what you feel.
Let me know that
I am the only one for you.
And making love, she said.
