I like Soft Women

by James Zealy

I like soft women
Round and curved
full and robust
smiling with life

To heck with the toothpick personna
Saturated by a video wetdream
Emaciated and listless
One step away from anorexea

Marilynn was a 14
And is legendary still
Yet picture perfect airbrushed symmetry
Paints lies that no women can achieve

Poster children for the malnourished
Describe a media infatuation with
A skewed sense of reality
And I still like soft women

Being a 'soft woman' myself, can I just tell you how much I love this poem? I think this is something that so many women can learn something from, that there are men out there who don't want the stick-thin "toothpick personnas". Thank you for posting this, its going under my favorites!

The image you have built up of a soft woman 'Round and curved' looks good.

*grinning from ear to ear* though I know you did not write this for me personally, it thrills me to read it!! (by the way, I've been told that I'm VERY soft...hehehee)

love it, kudos, couldn't agree more...I wrote a piece on anorexia, my cousin suffers, but it was a hard write for me....this is serious but still light...love it, peace, jewels
