can your strength support me?
for I’ve gained too many pounds

and this extra flesh is nothing compared
to this shame in which I’ve drowned

“I was beautiful, once,” she said,
shame and remorse filling her eyes,
and hope, reluctantly, causing her hands to tremble

“What happened?”, he replied with a snicker,
a complete lack of anything resembling a feeling,
which hung in his eyes like a vacancy sign
