A full confession

I confess

I have been Un-natural
Un-womanly
I have not done what I was supposed to do
Nor have I looked or acted like I was supposed to

I have not been sweet and gentle
I have not sacrificed myself (in fact I am frequently told that I don't know what that means)
I have not given my wombody over to its natural rightful purpose

You will not look over at me, to see me with our baby suckling at my full, milky-white, veined but somehow still beautiful to you breast, as I smile gently down, with eyes only for my babe, twinkling with unconditional love at her beauty, soft curls framing my face, ato once tired but sweet and pretty and natural, like it should be, as my right hand dandles her left, darling little fingers wrapped around my thumb
I will not sense you looking, and glance up at you, my man, knowing that you find me beautiful and natural and womanly, all as it should be

Sorry!

I have fucked up I guess

Now I can never hope to be pretty enough

There
I have confessed
