Bare Bones

This is what you get with me.

Generous curves, and gentle rolls of lavender vanilla lotion scented skin.  Legacy of heredity, and childbirth, and too much chocolate.

This is what you get with me.

Twenty plus years of traditional and trusting in the value of such, and crushed that I would someday have to defend in the choice I made, my worth, to anyone.

No, this is what you get with me.

Soft, and kind, and gentle in my spirit. Not one to set the world on fire. In the traditional sense.

I never will.

Still.

Black stockings, and laughing like crazy, and a fiery spirit, when I care.

I don’t want the whole world.

This is what you get with me.

  1. Happy International Women’s Day to you and all women and much respect as well. If it were not for all these things you speak of and so very much more us men would be nothing more than cold callus clunks! Cheers to the smiles women bring, the love they share, the kindness they show and the struggles they have faced and over came. Peace
