This Body

Location

This body is not an apology
This blacked out mirror 
This blacked out skin
This skin like shadows 
This shadow makes noise 
This "bitch don't make noise" 
This scream but no noise 
This scream but not listened to 
This listened to but not heard 
This fuck what you've heard 
This fucking but not love 
This backdoor black love
This unconditional love 
This God
This body is not an apology 
This hand is a blanket 
This blanket cover yo bruises 
This bruise is how he loves 
This "why he gotta love so hard?" 
This "why is love so hard?"
This "not the same when you love so hard" 
This heartbreak, but you loved so hard
This heartbreak tells stories 
This story read backwards sound like nightmare 
This nightmare about the beautiful boy with the sad, sad eyes 
These sad, sad eyes belong to this body 
This nobody 
This somebody 
This body is not an apology 
This offered me nothing but your apology 
This offered me nothing but your sorry 
This sorry but tomorrow will be better 
This tomorrow don't come around like it used to 
This "why you don't come around like you used to?"
This type of love don't come around like it used to 
This love 
This unconditional love 
This God 
This body is not an apology
