An English snowflake,

deadlier than all others.

Strikes fear in the heart.

Paralyse the country.

Conditions very risky.

I have lumps and bumps,

perfections, imperfections.

My body image

is only a perception,

look beyond the physical.

Know limitations.

The great whale swims the oceans,

he is just a whale.

Physical constraints bind him,

yet he may philosophise.

Trawling desires

with sensuous temptations.

Ensnare vanity

within forbidden shadows

of dark licentious envy.

Of you undressing,

primal anticipation,

excited eyes drawn.

Through unveiled bedroom window

my true character on view.

In your diary,

I discovered your secrets;

or the lack of them.

Was life so predictable;

you could not imagine change?

Berries hang on bush

Outside my study window

Wild birds visiting

Encourage me to escape

To spread my wings, fly away
