Sonnet to My Body (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)


"A Sonnet to My Body"

My brown eyes are like chocolate kisses in the June sun
Melted milk chocolate with coconut or almonds
They are almost as sweet as my Honey Buns
(Google says no words rhyme with almonds)

My sexy man-lingerie makes me giggle and sing
My man lips could enflame The Human Torch
I would let myself massage my toffee-colored man body like a king
I’d fuck myself under the June moon on a manly porch

If only I were a newborn house fly on my wall
My compound eyes gaze at my naked hips as I lay
Buzz, Buzz, Buzz, Buzz, I vainly call
But I ignore myself, my wings stop, I die at the end of the day

But like a zombie my man scent brings me back
I find myself, I talk to me, and we fuck next to a bike rack

As a matter of fact my body needs four more lines
So, I look myself into my eyes and see all the glory
And me and myself smoke a cigarette throwing away all my parking fines
‘Cause the future of my body is worth more than a 18-line story

When I find myself alone in the pain. When I feel like I have absolutely no one to turn to. When I wish the hurt would stop. When I don't know what to do. When I feel completely lost. When my eyes just won't stop welling up. When I don't want to bother anyone with my hurt, my pain. When I know that everyone has other responsibilities. I don't want to interrupt them with my hurt. When I have thought about all of the ways to make the hurt stop. When I am tired of putting on my strong face for others to see. When I am tired of the tears welling up, filling already soggy eyes. When I am tired of the tears, tears that roll non-stop over my cheeks. When I don't want to hurt the ones that I love the most. When it seems like those who are supposed to love me don't get who I am. When no one has any idea of the pain my smile hides. When I am worried about being forever labeled by others. When I am the one that everyone counts on for strength. When I never show any weak…
