The bed that is mine

There’s no room for you here
Beneath my crisp white scallop shell.
Its cotton creases cling too close
And all the space is filled with me
My ballooning calves spread to the edges
And muffin tops warmly expanding to meet eternity
No, you can’t be here                                            (Even if you wanted to be)
Even the space 
Tented from my breasts to my waist
Is filled with softly groping shadows                             (Where you will never be)

    I am enjoying reading up on all the poetry I can today. I am happy yours was one that I was able to read today. The weekend is here and I must also make time for my family life. I will be back on Monday as usual and I wish you a beautiful weekend filled with renewed inspiration Gracie. Love, Carol
