Thesis Statement...

So far, I have had somewhat of a difficult time structuring my thesis paper. I plan on writing my paper on, Sharon Old's poem, Sex without Love. This poem caught my eye at first glance simply because of the title. After reading the poem several times, I have managed to develop a core thesis; however, I do not think my thesis is strong enough. If you were to read the poem and paraphrase it, one could say that Old's believes casual sex is misunderstood; hence the title of the poem. Old's does a spectacular job at using comparative similes to express sexual actions. I love the poem but I really feel like I have not gotten down to its true meaning...this may take some time. Any suggestions on developing a stronger thesis?
