To Her Husband’s Concubine


The woman he loves is bright

Her eyes are bright

Her chin is one layered

Her tummy is round

Her hands are small

Her nose is pointy

Her feet are flat

Her face is round

Her jawline is sharp

Her lips are full

Her back is wrinkled

Her teeth are cream

Her soul is vintage

Her posture imperfect

Her spirit unbreakable

He loves her as much as a human could

Her hands are soft

Her smile is divine

Her tears rare

The woman he loves imperfect she be

Is the best of his gifts.

The woman he loves is her

-The other man who loves her
