Loving your look

Metallic black leather jeans

My love for occasions…but

Now I cringe with zipper jaws open

Slumped on sofa, tiers slumped, too

Onto my thighs

Determined I grabbed

Soup diets and exercise

Walks and fruit salads

I looked at chips

Stared at tikkas

Moody, angry, frustrated at self

I binged on crisps, a week later

‘Let’s go for a movie,’ hubby announced

And I pulled along

With a pink crepe top over floral skirt

Without a look at self, pulled a band

Up my hair as I slipped on a sandal

Strapping myself in the car, I heard

‘You look lovely today!’

Was I slapped? I was alert

But mind denied…

Uh! yea…let’s go

‘I mean it. I love you like this

Simple. Without make-up

How I saw you the first time…”
