Valentine’s Day

I buy you a sweater
You buy me a ring
I buy you a car
You buy me a house
What’s happened to love?
Why must we commercialize?
When did we decide
To quantify
And qualify
Our emotions?
Why can’t we just be?
Why can’t we just exist?
Solely for one another
What happened to us?
Torn by the increase commericalization of our love
This commericalization…
….is not love

I Don’t Dress Pretty For You

I don’t dress pretty for you
I’m not just another piece of eye candy
In such a materialistic, consumerist society
Pleasure is for sale

I don’t dress up to impress you
I’m not just a doll for your entertainment
I have thoughts and feelings
That you could never fathom

Happiness comes at a steep price
Are you prepared to pay?

I was born to live
Like every other human being
I was born with purpose and direction
To be whoever I wish

So don’t you dare reduce me to my biology
I have strength enough to bring you to your knees
I will crush your hopes and dreams for a passive mistress
And make you beg for mercy

In this capitalist world
You can’t afford a girl like me
