People on a Bed

The bodies we try so hard to perfect. The bodies with stretch marks from that time we started birth control and gained weight in places we were told not to. The scars that happened on accident, and the tattoos we wanted for a purpose. The bodies that hug, house love, hurt, kiss people and kiss animals. These bodies. Ours. 

"And I said to my body. softly. 'I want to be your friend.' It took a long breath. and replied, 'I have been waiting my whole life for this.'"
