this is where i'll be, when you decide to look for me

~

they’ll tell you 
  that i’m not perfect
not like them

        plastic 
  painted
          mannequin

super model 
    thin

    hanging 
on the arm of
    some well to do man 

i’m the soft 
    beautiful 
curves
in your heart

  filling empty spaces
    where hard sharp edges 
could never fit

        this is where i’ll be
when you decide 
    to look for me

~

Damn... You're leaving me wondering and wandering in the incomprehension of the thought of why you aren't famous. It must be by personal choice, so I will honour your wishes and resist asking for an autograph and just silently gush in awe of your thoughts and words.
You don't require staples through your middle to be seen.
Now I'm left wondering if that's why so many women have their belly buttons pierced 😀

It was nice at the time. :)

It all culminates to a gripping closing line...spilling over the heart of this reader. You really are quite the poet, Ana!

my pleasure entirely....... Neville
Those sharp edges can do a lot of damage. They always say beauty is skin deep, it's a hard lesson for both sexes. A lesson ignored until later in life. I know how it is to take a break, but it's good to read you again. CD

Hi Nema,
Thanks very much!
You go girl... what a poem full of fierce confidence in yourself... perfection is impossible and would be boring.
