You want me, oh how you want me
Some days I simply can’t wait to turn you on
I leap on to you any time of the day or night
And you always respond to my touch
You crave every inch of my naked body
Then you whisper words to me
Oh how you can hurt me and I wish you would lie to me
But you are always so brutally honest and I admire you for that
Some days I love you 
Other days I would love to ditch you and I never want to see you again
Guess we all have a love hate relationship with our bathroom scales

    oh baby how you want me, yes you do./ /Some days I cannot wait to turn you on./ In nakedness, I jump on top of you/ No matter if it's night or early dawn. (ok those are your first four lines, now go for it!!!)

    Ha ha, this is cute. I don't even own a bathroom scale. I am probably about 10 pounds over weight but I don't worry about it. I have never been on a diet in my life.

    This is so true Jan, my mother used to hide the scale in the closet every time she went on a diet, I enjoyed the read, read by nibbling carrot sticks by the way, so I can be Bugs Bunny Thin, he he xxx

    By the way why don't you rewrite the same poem as a sonnet. I did that with the through the mist contest. also if this helps to encourage the re-write. You should know I lost that contest.

    wow i love the imagery. it is so clear and so simple to understand. i really like relationship poetry. it's wonderful that the narrator is married to a scale. we've come a long way in our society. reminds me of cultures that live in the mountains where men are men and the sheep are nervous.

    The scales that break my heart are "fish scales"....they're either too light or too short to keep. Nice write, loved the humor, thanks for the chuckle.
