The reason women are turning you down for casual sex seems to be that, for one thing, a lot of you are calling them sluts afterward. Also, a lot of you aren’t bothering to try to be good in bed.
so, before I go
making skyscraper out of you,
I’m gonna make
monument out of me. mister,
before I go rearranging the space
between heart and belly to house you
in the softest parts of me;
before I go building you an empire
of all the life that grows underneath,
I’m gonna hug my knees to my chest
and kiss them an apology
for every night I bent them, in prayer,
asking God why my lips and my
thighs and my hair are so big.
why my legs are so short and my voice
so loud. why my hands are so small
and my heart so big.
… Let alone be my friend. I may not be easy, but I’m worth it.
