Woman

He says

That I am

Always too much

Yet never enough

 

Too much alcohol

And too little dignity

Too much make-up

Not enough clothes

 

Or vice-versa

 

Too much self-confidence

Or not enough smile

Or too much insecurity

And not enough confidence

 

Too much food

And not enough exercise

Too much muscle

Not enough fat

 

Or vice-versa

 

Too much sugar

But never sweet enough

Too much career

Not enough babies

 

Or vice-versa

 

And I could follow example

But wouldn’t he tell me

I am too much of a man

And not enough woman?

 

But isn’t he?

 

He is too much looking

Into the mirror

And casting its reflection onto me

 

And not enough letting me be

 

And when I look at myself

What else would I see?

Too much of him

And not

Enough

me
