Your body is a wonderland

The way you arch your back is

As beautiful as the tattered spine of my favorite book

The curve of your lips

Are the dog-eared pages that I keep going back to

Your scars and stretch marks

Are the highlighted passages that make it all beautiful

And the cover is imprinted with a heart-shaped bruise

    This is better than just unconditional acceptance. It is true love. It is beautiful.
