To My Boyfriend

Sat, 01/11/2020 - 22:45 -- Avaline

To my boyfriend-

I don’t want your hands on me,

I don’t want you to touch my curves

I don’t want you to say how thick I am,

I don’t want you to say how I should lose weight

 

You have no right to touch me,

to make me feel 

P O W E R L E S S

in my own relationship

 

You have no right to say that I am fat,

to make me feel 

H A T R E D

for myself

 

Society lets you do these things,

but I won’t
