i have been lusted after
but i have never been loved.


you see,
there is a powerful difference
between my body existing as a trophy--


“FIRST PLACE FOR NAILING A FAT CHICK”


and respectful adoration
for the flesh
which houses my soul.


“i dig big girls”
has always been the paramount reason
for the hands which have wandered
around my curves,
faux affectations cooed into my ear,
but i have never heard
“you’re beautiful”
without the parenthetical tag-along


(for a fat girl).


my body is not the society standard mold,
so toy with me!
toss me around!


never let me forget


how lucky i am
that you would stoop so low.


never let me forget
that this is a one-time thing,
that i will see your couch,
your bed,
but i am not worthy to be acquainted
with anything more,


you are doing me a favor.


that you do not date
girls
like
me.



never let me forget
that when i am in love with myself,
when i am comfortable
in my clothes, in my skin,
letting someone touch me,
letting someone love me


i am wrong.

you taught me

how to fold my hand

around a gun, but never

how to clean

the blood

afterward.

you taught me how to

trample over hearts,

how to slice them up and pull

apart their delicate strings,

but you never warned me

that i had to

be brave

to love something.

I am the empty half of the glass,

I am the less greener side of grass.

I am the worm caught by the birds,

I am the picture not worth words.

I am the trash found by another,

I am the book judged by its cover.

A/N: thanks to alexandrasophie for letting me know about a few errors. always glad to have help to improve my french.

paris, t'es ma préférée,

mais ma vie n'est jamais dans tes rues, entouré par le bruit éclatant dans mes oreilles.tes lumières sont belles mais trop lumineuses pour les yeux.

mais quelquefois

après la pluie, avant le retour de soleil, lorsque que tout le monde reste à l'interieur.

au meme moment,

la ville est gris et rose pleine de vent calme.

c'est paris, c'est mon paris

je suis la reine du calmede la violence, de l'orageen...

One of the staples of British television drama is that of the fake bakery (or "fakery"). The exact origins of the trope are unclear, but cultural historians know that it predates the widespread accessibility of mass media platforms like television and radio, and is thought to have begun with the entertainers on the popular music hall scene of the early 20th Century.

Fake bakery stories often involve the uncovering of a conspiracy involving one or more bakeries, which turn out to be a front for something else - usually nefarious in...
