Female Clasp

I don’t want a boyfriend
even though I’d be on the fringe
desiring the simple joys
beauty found when the same join

that attachment that most expect
masculine attached with the regret
for what’s missed on that path
normality denied in aftermath

when surety is expressed
to the object of love compressed
into a moment without a man
just hanging before a lifespan

I don’t want a boyfriend
this is my chance to ascend
to find the source of true romance
within the arms of a female clasp.
