If My Body Could Talk


If my body could talk

Laughter would erupt from within and flood the air

"Why do such random and strange thoughts race through your mind?"

"Thanks for all the terribly fatty food that tastes amazing."


If my body could talk

Its questions would hang in the air

"Why do you hate me?"

"What have I done except allow life to exist in your veins?"


If my body could talk

Desperate pleas of peace would emerge from its lips

"Put the knife down just for tonight!"

"Don't leave life's beauty for a mere escape you do not need!"


If my body could talk

One never-ending plea would resonate inside me

"Please. Please, all I want is for you to love me."
