How Do You Not Want Me As I Am?

You say you don’t love me not like you used to

I remember when you saw me
for who I am rather than
who you wanted me to be
maybe this was all just a dream
my essence an attainable thing
your want not enough to keep me

you say you don’t love me
not like you used to, and I wonder
how this person became something
you didn’t want anymore

what changes did my atoms take
to not reply a universe
when you looked at me?

How is my reflection not enough
whole now
versus the jagged edges
you must have enjoyed how

I cut you, and now I’m
too smooth and too much
to delight in rapture sex
and hunted body

I am too easy a meal
and you are too full
to eat me.




I'm unapologetically me with a hard edged view of life. I love to travel and have crazy amounts of fun spaced between quiet moments.
