She’s Stubborn–That’s Okay: Romantic ImproVerse Sonnet

November 28, 2015

She said she is stubborn.
That brings a thrill
when you’re looking for someone
Who is just so strong willed.

With brightly flashing eyes,
With a firmly set jaw;
It came as no surprise:
I liked what I saw.

Someone who likes independence.
Someone who’s waltzed through strife.
Someone with whom I could take a chance
At this dance we call life.

With someone not afraid to go solo, I think it would be fun!
And so I’ll shout “Let’s go! Come on! Get it on!”

and just move on.
You at last give voice
to your independence song.

simply grow inert.
They no longer last.

And as you live without any more crying,
you carry on as your tears are drying.
