The Daily Prompt – Curve

Am I still a real woman,
after losing my breasts?
Am I more than the sum
of the curves on my chest?
Could a man ever love me,
when my body is weak?
When illness left me,
a bit of a freak?


Daily Prompt – Disappointment


It began with a smile,

and the very best of intentions.

But intentions are worthless,

when built on lies and deceptions.

My disappointment lies

not in the way that it ended,

but in my lack of pride

as I weakly surrendered.
