Sexual object

See what I do for you,

See how I dress for you,

See how I tone my body

All to be desired,

See how I give to you

All the things you want from me,

This is the way it’s always been

I am just a sexual object,

See how I never think

I only wear tight and sexy things,

That’s because I need to know

That you still adore me

You can’t take your eyes from me,

Yet inside I am hollow,

Inside I lack depth,

Because I feel so cheap

I am just your sexual object.

  1. Hi faux. I love a lot of your poetry but I have to say I feel that this poem shows a complete lack of compassion for the person who is being objectified/objectifying themselves. I also feel it’s dangerous to spread these non-compassionate ideas to your readers. You have a following of 4500 plus. It’s a lot of influence.

    Also, women don’t all tone their bodies or dress a certain way *just* for other people. Far from it. The reasons are as complicated as human society, or as simple as basic health and fitness. And there are perhaps as many reasons people act and dress as they do as there are individuals (including men and other genders).

    “Yet inside I am hollow, / Inside I lack depth”

    It seems cruel to speak as if from the perspective of the woman in the (uncredited) photo in this way, especially when you the author seem to identify as male.

    I hope you don’t mind me speaking my mind lol.

    I find a lot of your poetry to be beautiful and inspiring, thanks for sharing it with the world.

    1. Yeah I see your point. I meant this from a point of view of those women you see all over social media using their physical being to sell themselves rather than their intellect or spiritual being. Apologies for this. β˜ΉοΈπŸ™ Faux

      1. πŸ’›Thank you so much for this kind reply. I totally hear you. It’s tough from both sides. I think many are taught to do this subconsciously and “sex sells” as they say. And if you sell spirituality it doesn’t seem as spiritual somehow. It’s complicated and I feel that you operate on feelings in the moment and I think you’re a brilliant poet. I appreciate the response so much. Thanks again. πŸ™πŸ˜Š

      2. My pleasure, I always try to avoid offending people but some tough subjects can irk others and for good reasons. I am humbled you think me good as a poet and hope you continue to enjoy what I write. I write in a hope to bring pleasure, awareness and a strong message to others to consider. I truly value your support and kindness. πŸ™πŸ’› Faux

      3. I don’t think you’re good as a poet I think you’re an amazing poet. I truly mean that. And if those are your goals I think you certainly achieve them. It takes true guts and time and care to respond to comments like these (as I know myself) so utmost respect to you for that. Best wishes and likewise on the kindness and support πŸ™πŸ™πŸ’›πŸ’›
