I recall my disappointment
On first seeing you nude.
An admission I admit that could be
You are utterly attractive,
have a wonderful frame,
but there’s you with clothes and you without
and they’re not quite the same.
while you still had your clothes on,
I had imbued you perfection,
with rather massive shoulders
and a cut mid section.
but when I saw you naked.
it was a disconcerting matter-
how your chest got softer
and your butt got flatter.
yet today I watch you sleeping so superbly unfurled.
and I can’t imagine trading that body
for any body-
nearly any other body in the world
