I know what’s in your heart
I know when you want to hold me
when you want me to jump onto your lap
lay on your book, your bed, your pillow
I know how to look cute so that you feed me

I know when to purrrrr to make you love me
I know everything about you
and while you’re cradling me in your arms
you never think about the fact
that I’m the best killer on the planet

“You need to find a person who will love you back.”
“Will you do that?”
“I don’t believe you.”
“What do you love about me?” she sighed. “Maybe that will help us figure out what the problem is.”
“I love everything about you.”
“Your eyes, your hair, your voice, your intelligence, your sense of humor, your beauty, your body, your music, your art, the books you read and give to me, the movies you like, the way you decorate, the…”
“That’s enough,” she said, putting her head down on the small, round, red, table.
“What do you love about me?” he asked, staring at her.
“The same things but you’re not my boyfriend.”
“I know,” he said, smiling.
I believe that
half the trouble
in the world
comes from people asking
“What have I achieved?”
What have I enjoyed?”
THESE are the messages we are sending out to women. Work hard, be nice, be SUPER and expect to be EXHAUSTED, working for OTHERS. Insane! And you’ll NEVER see anything like this on men’s shirts. “Be NICE???” OMG I’m surprised it didn’t say SMILE as well.
