When we met

College is the time to get away from parents Getting an education at day, going to house parties at night And it was one of those house parties that I met my love He was standing there so handsome and all his might I didn’t want to go Having to be around havoc and chaos wasn’t my style But when I saw him, I suddenly felt helpless And he made that moment feel worth while I wasn’t as skinny as the other girls I was a dirty house maid compared to them At least he didn’t care about that Because I was the only special one to him After that night, I got his number written down I held on to it tight and close to my heart As I imagined a future with him by my side No one could ruin this moment, tear it apart Call me crazy or a fool But it was something that ignited me deep inside He was everything I ever wanted in a man And these gentlemen are rare to come by Our first date was beautiful It was beyond compare He took me out to a fancy restaurant and got me flowers This was something that I wasn’t prepared As we were seated, and dinner was served He kept looking at the skinny hot girls that would pass I would ask him why he would stare at the them He would day I am his only one and turn away fast As our relationship progressed, so did his ideals on the perfect girlfriend He told me to do my hair more often And a little makeup would suit me well I looked so beautiful, Like Marilyn Monroe on a budget But he started to take it farther He would have me put on these hurtful heels to wear Once I complained about them being so tight and hurtful He made me take the bus and I didn’t have enough for the fare But this is love He cares for me Everything he does for my good Even if most people don’t understand and see One day he brought over this tight dress I couldn’t fit in it and it started to stretch He gave me a sign And a look of a wretch “This is love All that extra weight is starting to interfere I want what’s best for you You are going to be perfect my dear” That what he said, and I did as tell He was able to get me a gym membership I work out every day to get fit So, I wouldn’t lose the relationship that I had finally got a grip Of everything that I did, he still wasn’t pleased I had lowered 20 pounds in two weeks I looked thinner than a twig bug But on our next date, he said he could still see the weight in my cheeks
