I struggle often
there are so many lonely people
when I have so much love to give.
Why is my love not good enough for men?
Why does my body fat make me unqualified
to give and receive love?
What makes men so self-absorbed
that they think that women are only loveable
if they wear a size two?
What does my dress size have to do
with the size of my heart?
Why is love only desirable
when it comes from a skinny body?
Somehow, the math just doesn’t add up.
And loneliness abounds
while I drown in my own love.
