Fuller Form

by

Kimberley Leonard

You hold the softness of my body understanding only its form
I lie within and wait for you to show me how I am recognised as me -
not just another body that you have laid beside.
Show me, acknowledge me
Love not just the flesh that moves beneath your own.
I am more than just the fullness of my breast and the curve of my hip-
I am more than just a woman.


Cat

by

Kimberley Leonard

Narrowing eyes,
and crouching back,
wriggling tail,

the pause-

the attack.


Betrayl

by

Kimberley Leonard

You want to believe him
You love him
But every word he says
makes you think of
another
The Other
And what he said to her
and did
And why
And when you can't understand
He cries
And you want to believe him
You love him
But every word he says
makes you think of another
The Other
And what he said to her
And did
And why
And when you can't understand
He cries
That he loves only you
Liar.
