I have to step on the scale today
I’ve been waiting
Days
Weeks
Months
For a step
A leap
A deep dive

How will I explain?
Will her wrath pour down—
A hurricane
Of rage
Shame
And humiliation

Will she
Push me out in the rain
In satin
And pretend that I’m dry?

Will she send
A tsunami—
Merciless destruction
For all I have done

I lied for survival
Gained her trust
Abused it
When she looked away

She won’t understand
Wow, I feel faint
Doesn’t she know?
It’s all for the scale

Before I know it
I’m plummeting
Rippling inside
Till I meet my glassy fall
