How to love a woman (1/3)

If you’re going to love me,

You’re going to have to love all of me.

You’re going to have to look at my scars

And leave me space to heal them.

You may have to listen

As I cry into your arms

For no conceivable reason

Other than every reason there can be.

You may love my sunshine

But you will be enamored by my darkness,

When I can see your being

In the purity of light, dark,

And every million of shades in between.

If you’re going to love me,

You’re going to have to love all of me.

You may love my body

On the days when I am fit and humming with energy

You may love my ass, my legs, my smile

But will you love my cellulite?

Will you love the parts of me that I find hard to love?

I want you to be mesmerized by my strength,

Dazzled by my mind,

Hypnotized by my movement

Always up and always forward

But I will always come back for you
