“Baby girl, all you got to do is stay pretty,
say nothing. Make me look good”. He says.
Her insides are churned up in an inner turmoil.
Juggling in between perfection, respect and
self worth. She caresses Vanity instead of dignity.
Polished to perfection and well placed on the shelf.
Her life is like a movie, she is the star imitating the
seasonal decorations, taking up the spot of a garden
gnome in a home to be looked at and admired.
The perfect house wife to a rich, powerful male.
Carefully situated to be seen but not heard.
Accentuated with long perfectly manicured finger
nails, perfect body and pretty face, she doesn’t
need to cook, do laundry or clean but always look
absolutely her best. She is an investment, so he
protects her like his business assets.
Enabling cosmetic surgeries, and decadence.
Beauty most sufficient for high end parties and
expensive events. Fake smiles embroidered in
public for a perfect marriage. She sets the stage
for a performance. Embracing the look of a
princess on the steeple. Hanging on his hand,
always ready to be paraded around. His favorite
muse by the sidewalk, a prize most sufficient.
Playing the role of a trophy mother to children
she seldom sees. Buying time with rich friends
and indulging in luxuries. A little primping to stash
her up on the shelf, a setting pedestal she stands.
She was not sought because she is smart.
“Blonde” provided the satisfaction he needed.
A perfect setting for someone he can control.
Flowers and expensive gifts provided a cover up.
Vacations and dinners to buy affection.
Money to please, money to keep his trophy wife happy.
He had been married before, divorced a few times.
Caught up with societal perception, image and maintaining
a certain reputation among the business community.
A flawless beauty to impress his colleagues and associates,
he only needs her to look pretty, smile and stay quiet.
He encourages more looks instead of books.
She doesn’t need a job, he got her covered.
Quick to embarrass and scold her in public.
Her opinions and thoughts are never considered.
He treats her like a fool and plays cool.
More opportunities to enhance her face and body.
A smack on her butt for some motivation.
She is after all his trophy, his favorite achievement.
A trophy wife he likes to show off when convenient.
