Thick Madame of Color

Location

My skin so caramel brown
And body nicely round
Curves here and there
But nobody seems to care
I live in a certain air
Burn with a body and soul
That no one can control
I am my own human being
Naturally me in every way
Longing for someone to stay
And to want to take a stand
By my side
Not leave me to go hide
Behind society's face
A place where they only chase
The "perfect" woman
Existing fully in the imagination
No one gives confrontation
To this false fairy tale
They only want to keep them locked
In that part of the mind
Called their jail
Who has the strength to break free
And see someone like me
My skin so caramel brown
And body nicely round
Curves here and there
But no one seems to care
I live in a certain air
Claiming my atmosphere
I am not a significant other
I am a thick madame of color
