21st Century “Love”

Original Poetry

She was more concerned
About reaching his heart,
And learning to love
The flaws he wasn’t proud of.
He concerned himself with
How not so tight her waist was,
And a thigh gap wasn’t on the cards,
And how she didn’t make him laugh
Like his other friends.
He expected something from her
That didn’t exist,
And a part of her died
Every night
Because he was forever
Disappointed.
Dissatisfied.
