Mine – 4

there are days when
i feel so un-beautiful
when my hips
look just too-wide
but then i catch you
watching me from where you stand
and i know then
that i’m more than
all right

more than the woman
i think i am
more than just skin
and strong bones
i’m so much more
because i know you love me
i’m so much more than anyone
outside of us
knows

*This is for National Poetry Month, where I’m writing on a theme. Inspired by Álvaro de la Herrán‘s video for GQ Spain called Mine

One thought on “Mine – 4

  1. I feel sorry for the person that cannot find fault in themselves. They can never know the magnificent beauty of being loved and accepted regardless of any real or perceived fault in oneself.

I'd love to hear what you think!
