Uniquely Me

I'm allergic to sugar which helps me keep slim
If I eat too much, congestion makes me grim

Never bought lipstick, my lips are naturally dark red
People think I'm wearing when Vaseline on them I spread 

I wash dishes with my right hand, can only dry with my left 
A wee bit Ambidextrous makes me quite frankly very deft

Perfume I have never purchased, so many make me sneeze  
Strawberry oil I dab on my neck, wrists and behind my knees

I sometimes talk backwards when I talk to fast or get excited
Catching myself makes me laugh and my boys get delighted

I only need to shave my legs maybe a couple times a year
Hairs so baby fine and sparse, I save on razors that's clear

I rarely wear deodorants my sweat rarely stinks you see
A healthy diet is all you really need that I can guarantee 

I have never drank coffee, I like the smell but not the taste
Virtually caffeine free, my boundless energy I've embraced

I fear going under water whenever I'm in water over my head
I have yet to conquer diving the thought fills me with dread

There's not a ticklish spot anywhere on my body to be found
Even though I'm highly sensitive, to not be is quite profound

It's weird that I don't like carrying a purse, when I do mine is very small
I'm nervous that out of my pocket my cell phone or credit cards will fall

I rarely do one thing at once, I tend to multi-task most of the time
I actually played scrabble on line while I composed this rhyme

    LOL, Cecilia, the multi-task poet... I can't seem to wonder how much fun you had writing this poem. I love sugar, which explains why I can't stay away from climbing trees. Slim, I am not, heheheh!!! I have a feeling, we have more in common than not in common. Firstly, I too rarely wear deodorant, I hardly ever stink .. I always, thought it was caused, I never allow myself to sweat. I fear water. Yes, I do... My daughter laughs at my opinion on shaving legs... LOL.. Are you a Libra? :)

    The author takes a look at her life picture and we are invited to tag along. The story flows pleasantly with a realistic current that pushes you to the next line. The story's simple, yet you feel anxious to hear what happens next and the words take on a friendly note, letting us feel part of the inner circle. Very good! Emile.
