Sitting nude, lotion in hand
I stare forlornly at my crepe paper stomach.
Should I count the crisscross train tracks
Traversing the wide expanse of my middle?
Or would the nighttime stars be an easier task?

Such a symbol of nurture and matronly invitation
To curl your head and suckle
From mother earth's bounty.
A badge of sacrifice signifying the den
From which you were once evicted.

Clad in my pillow-soft chainmaille apron
I am protected from advances,
From my own lack of inhibitions.
Protection at a price.
If only I could lift the strings from my neck.

    You wrote this? That's just beautiful! Amazing! I can't say "beautiful" enough!
I've chosen to think of my train-tracks as battle scars. Evidence that I've fought hard and am winning. What soldier cares about his scars compared to not giving up his life?

"Pillow-soft chainmaile apron." I will be running that one through my mind all day. LOVE it! You couldn't have described it any better.
