12 Love Poems For Women Who Think Romance Is BULLSH*T

Love

Because who needs all that gushy stuff?

I am not a romantic person.

Don't get me wrong, if you want to festoon me with flowers or dump a box of chocolates in my lap, I won't be mad at it. 

But if a guy were to compose me a love poem and then recite it?

I'd be more likely to swoon from shame than I would be to swoon from deep and abiding passion at his heartfelt gesture. 

Just because I'm not a traditionally romantic woman, that doesn't mean I don't appreciate poetry.

If anything, when I find a love poem for her that isn't all about someone's throbbing member or how their hair looks like sunlight, I feel personally vindicated.

Because let's be real:

Poetry may be full of pure light and love, but love isn't always like that. 

Sure those love poems for her that are designed to make a woman feel like a goddess have their place.

But I prefer a love poem for her that's going to point out the awkward, the uncomfortable, the funny, and the dark side of romance and love. 

Just because I prefer to read a sweet ode about my vagina, that doesn't mean I don't know how to love or appreciate gestures of romance.

Love poems should be specific. 

Sweet little poems are great for sweet women, but a more complicated, sarcastic eye-rolling dame deserves something a little bit different. 

She deserves something like one of these totally hilarious and totally lovely poems for her! 

Love isn't a four letter word...but it should be!
