My body took a walk the other night.

Without me.

By all accounts she meant no harm

And demonstrated wit and charm

Enough

To convince all parties

She was me

My body had something she wanted

Without me

She didn’t mince a single word

Or I guess it’s what I’ve heard

Since

She took my eyes when she was

Being me

My body swam in anesthetic

Without me

Numb she laughed for more abuse

But now the pain of every bruise

Each tear and consequence

Belong to me

My body took a lover

Without me

She used my face, my lips, my smile

And MY lover so beguiled

That now he keeps comparing her

To me
