“Whenever There Was You” 4/10


That entire month was a 6 ring circus.
Do you know how much fire I had to swallow
To burn the extra flesh from my mid section?
That was only the opening act!
But the ladies loved it and wanted me to teach them
the trick of cooking themselves to perfection.
You wouldn’t speak to me for weeks.
You missed my thighs that could make a head disappear
You were disappointed in the skinny scars.
But it was all for you love
All for perfect.
All for my idea of your perfect.
When there was you
I should have loved myself too…
