love for the lovely

maybe
love
is for other people
with perfect smiles
& perfect hair
& perfect lives
a love
those disheveled souls
like myself
can watch on tv
& dream
of never
having.

who saw this one coming? i have been the virgin mother, joan of arc, the queen of hearts…it was inevitable that i would get around to being venus?

  1. That stuff on TV isn’t love, it’s some strange, twisted caricature of love that’s brainwashing people. I think the Venus and Adonis story conveys this point to a certain extent…

    1. i know that tv love isn’t real. it’s all a fantasy to set people up for impossible expectations. which is what love feels like to me. i think that’s where i was trying to go with that?? i will have to refresh myself on that story (venus & adonis)
