Skinny (still sort of a rough draft)

In Uncategorized on March 7, 2011 at 12:55 am

He promises love,
anything in between
it seems like enough
but I’m not skinny.

He doesn’t date around
but he’s been there before,
he’s been in beds,
he’s able to “score.”

He doesn’t sleep around
but he’s done “enough.”
I’m not up-to-par
if I’m not starving myself.

I’ve never been raw
or completely real,
I’ve never been skinny,
I accept it as God’s deal.

I write letters,
never mailed,
“I won’t be naked,
until completely thin.”
