Sturdy

I’m looking for a sturdy girl,
one who can take a punch
to her metaphorical gut
when I require solitude.

One who won’t fall in love
because of a love poem
and won’t fall apart
when she’s not my muse.

One to be the center of my universe
for an evening, to be my toy,
content to sit on a shelf
until I’m ready to play again.

I’m looking for a sturdy girl.
I am the swine and she the pearl.

(From today’s Living Poetry Prompt.)

  1. I really love this.
    It’s like a non love poem that people fall in love with lol
