They tell me I’m beautiful.

They say,

“I am so jealous of your legs”.

 

They don’t know,

It scares me,

They never brush against each other.

 

They tell me I’m lucky.

They say,

“You are so tall”.

 

They don’t know,

I was made to be taller

but my back,

It’s broke.

 

They tell me I look like a model.

They say,

“You are so skinny”.

 

They don’t know,

I feel so weak,

I tremble and shake.

 

For goodness sake,

I’m skin and bones and wide awake.

Hiding Behind a Face

No-one knows me,

I’m hiding behind a face.

Faking emotions on a daily base.

smiling, why thank you!

Laughing, oh Sir.

Sitting here writing this f*cking poetry blurb.

Can you not see through these eyes?

Can you not see through my deep blue lurk?

I question you,

Have you had nice day?

And then you yell,

Please look this way,

“I’ll pray for you with all my faith!”

[I will never give up on my man simply because he doesn’t live up to my unrealistic fantasies, look closely and I can see a man who works hard to give his family everything they need and I can see a man who loves me beyond words.]

 

My love, will you watch the sunset with me by the ocean?

Baby girl, it’s cold outside tonight.

Will you play me a song that you love?

I can’t think of any at the moment, I’m sorry.

Will you kiss me in the rain until our lips turn blue?

Why don’t we just stay inside where it’s warm?

Will you walk with me until the souls of our feet bleed?

You know I don’t like to go for pointless walks.

Will you marry me on the beach, in the summer, somewhere hot?

I would marry you right here and now.

Darling, will you love me forever?

Baby, I will love you forever more.
