Drown

He loved only himself
He wouldn’t look at me

Hips too large
Thighs too thin

I said too much
I never said enough

He couldn’t stand it
The scent of other men diffused in my skin

I found a river
Where women came to drown

Staring in the depth longingly
Desperate for a lovers indulgence

A sacrifice is an endless affair
I’ve leaned by the river bank for much too long
