Costume

A dress that is different A hint of flare The flower and the hat Does a costume wear A coat that is robust That hides much from eyes The kerchief and the gloves Does a costume spy And yet a costume can be more Than clothes upon our back And in that is dange When…

What Sexy Is

Sexy shouldn’t be defined By the size of boobs and butts By the slimness of a waist And the firmness of our guts The confidence, the quirks The differences- admire  And see that sexiness Isn’t just one desire Because sexy is the girl That knows who she is That has brains and guts And is…

What If…

What if… This is the right person The right circumstance  The right place The right time What if… Life is no longer joking It’s not just another half relationship It’s the real thing What if… He gets it He understands He knows there are walls That he did not build But he will break brick…

Too Safe

Life is meant to be lived Not to constantly exercise caution Because being too safe Is a life half lived

Set Up
