good girl

by Linda M. Crate

i'm a good girl, shy girl
just want a man
that can appreciate my love
and devotion
who loves me despite my quirks and
someone that understands
my need to get all the words
locked up inside me out,
and treats me with
wouldn't hurt if he were good
on the eyes, either,
but maybe mother's right —
my standards are high,
but are they really
too elevated
like mountains pressing through
the mist;
are they really so deep a chasm
that no one would dare
swim the ocean of me?
i simply want someone in my hues
share a life with another
that connects his heart to
my soul without jerking away.
