    right now,
    i hate my belly
    it has,
    in fact,
    gotten out of control
    i can’t locate my waistline
    i remember when my tummy was
    flat and supple,
    not bulbous and bloated!
    now it has two parts
    ...like a cow...
    what’s up with swell?
    maybe it’s because
    i carry to much stuff in there -
    broken promises &
    frustrations &
    disappointments...
    i’ve made it into a storage room
    full of junk
    i need to throw away
    like
    the ulcer that rages from stress
    internal and external;
    failed relationships
    and other assorted pieces
    of love’s sometimes bitter fruit;
    the pain of a diseased womb
    that may never bear fruit;
    unhealthy eating habits that i developed to
    hide, placate, and console myself -
    i have used my belly as a shield
    from
    too much beauty
    too much sexuality
    perhaps, too much self-respect?
    tonight, i’m doing some **** crunches!!!

    I have peeped...

    ...the fact that
    you're in love
    with those words.
    It's written all over
    your verse(s), and
    this is just one of
    those that make
    you say...
    "hmmmm...
    you know, I too
    can relate."

    This is where it's at poet...
