A Snap Decision

A Snap Decision

A Poem by Joshua McNay

A heartfelt poem about a dick pic? There is a first time for everything. Enjoy!


As dark as it might sound,

I thought a heart attack would be what turned me around.

Force me to change my ways,

instead of being something that I only say.

Turns out it was something else that did the trick,

it was when I tried to take an erotic pic.

I tried a few angles, and messed with the light,

no matter what I did it just wasn't right.

When I settled on a few,

I sent them to you,

Saw it said opened and I got excited,

the pics weren't the best, but I'd hope you'd be delighted.

You did show me yours, so I should show you mine,

we were flirting back and forth it felt like the right time.

But a few minutes passed with no reply,

flirty joy was replaced with the question of why?

My mind started racing, and my heart started sinking,

damn it Josh! What the hell were you thinking?

I was breaking down, why was this happening,

her silence was so loud, it was deafening.

As I sat in the dark, alone with my thoughts,

filled with the regret that my decisions brought.

I was embarrassed, but not in sending that,

it was more like I'd forgot I was fat.

Yeah, I know that's weird to say,

when it's clear if you look at me.

But seeing myself in unflattering light,

was the final straw for me that night.

I need to make a change, this time for real,

the overweight me must go so I can heal.

It won’t be easy, and it won't be quick,

but I owe it to myself to take a better pic
