Backache

sensitive about her body

gym doing physical jerks

I praised her endeavours

my flattery usually works

 

then came a stupid row

for jealousy of her friends

that fresh independence

envy ease of mind rends

 

my criticisms undermine

confidence to be curbed

barbed comments, digs

her self-worth disturbed

 

warned her shape awry

put her mind on the rack

getting far too muscular

much too broad her back

 

her tears, yes it was cruel

dont know why I said it

my insecurity I suspect

faltering ego that fed it

 

now she might be dying

what good my remorse?

if she lives, dont care if

she's the back of a horse
