You’re Precious

“You’re pretty.”
“You’re sexy.”

These compliments
fall off a lustful tongue.

Do I have any worth
behind these brown eyes
and beneath porcelain skin?

If bodies had a price,
would hearts be included
or considered priceless?

Am I truly valuable to you?
Does my heart carry any weight
besides in my pocket?

If you could whisper any phrase,
I wish it was something
not so superficial,

something akin to…
“You’re precious.”
