I had an epiphany recently
I don’t want a boyfriend because it will somehow complete me 
Being single has given me perspective of what my completeness means
I will cover myself in Acrylic paints, never judging myself
lose myself in the artistic process
Get caught up screaming Marianas Trench at the top of my lungs
And then when the hours of day grow dim
Type away at my keyboard faster than a proper sentence can ever end in formulation
 as my poetry feels the need for its freedom of expression
and I will put on a black t-shirt and pants sip on my coffee and consider Romance
walk through the hallways with my stereo blaring
I’m not the one for shyness when it comes to dancing to little Wayne on a public
I treat my golden retriever like a family member,  
We share a beautiful silence together under midnight quiet air
I had an epiphany recently
Being single has given me perspective of what my completeness means
