I see you every day at the gym
You are there when I get there and still there when I leave
I look at your body and see your dedication and painstakingly hard work
I study you.
Skin stretching over bone with such precision it is like an anatomy class.
Our eyes always meet
I don’t know how to react
Today was different. I decided to smile. I smiled with all my heart.
I tried to say “you are good enough” with my eyes.
I don’t understand why you don’t eat
I don’t understand why you work your body to the bone and then look in the mirror and see ugly and fat.
What is going on with you ?
Tomorrow I will speak to you.
Tomorrow I will say something that makes sense.
