Unique…. 

This Valentines Day…

Don’t be…

the cookie cutter girl…

Waiting on the cookie cutter guy…

To send the cookie cutter red roses….

Like the millions of others

Instead

Be the girl 

Quietly in the corner…

With no cookie cutter standards

Waiting for the

right guy

To send.. 

White daisies…

Or

Sunflowers

Or even

Wildflowers… 

Because he knows she s unique

And not

a cookie cutter girl 

TMatt 2018 

Safe

When I ve had enough of

the noise…

the phone rings

the text alerts

and the email sounds

 

and the demands of the world..

 

I want to be alone..

With only you..

 

No TV

No phones

No electronics

 

Quiet

 

Unplugged

 

Wrapped in your arms

Listening to you breathe

Drinking in your smell

Feeling safe

 

 

 

her…

she’s always worked 2-3 job to provider for her child…

and always community involved

learned to depend on herself because there were no others she could depend on…

huge heart

college degree

successful career

talented…

beautiful eyes…

curves for days…

but every day..

she wonders what it wrong with her

because she keeps getting passed over by men

who never take her seriously

and choose others

she gets tired of the pain

and

she throws herself into

her work

and

art

and

volunteer service….

to forget

and

distract

and to separate

and

shut down

…..and

withdraws into her shell

and

goes numb
