I don't get why whip cream

turns you on

or why roses 

mean romance

 

Sure - there's history

behind it all

But in reality?

I don't want a fucking rose

Just another flower that I have to keep alive

And when it dies,

what then?

 

Do you continue to buy flowers?

Until when does this 

morbid circle end?

 

And whip cream - 

watching a woman lick it slowly...

that's considered sexy?

The fuck why???

 

Let me feel fat on my own

and in peace

as I eat a spoonful of whip cream

I don't need you watching me eat

 

And strawberries???

That slow bite into

chocolate covered fruit...

 

You sick person

 

I ain't trying to eat one bite of a strawberry

You give me a few or a box

It's like potato chips

You don't just eat one

That's blasphemous

 

I guess... 

the point I'm trying to get across...

me eating = not sexy

don't watch me

that makes it weird
