be-mused

I have wanted to be
the kind of girl
who has poems written
about her.
but when someone did,
I offered
constructive criticism.

now I quietly envy
the flowers my friends
have sent to them at work,
and wonder what
wedding ring set I would have had
if I’d had things my way.

but oh, I have so much more
than flowers that wither
or flashy stones that would
only get in my way,
and love expressed through actions
means more than any
windy words,
no matter how pretty.
