Acceptance 

I am not used to feeling so soft beneath him. 

Let me make this clear: I do not have a body touchable with the eyes. I have a chest to chest body, a thick thighs body that bends too little too far, a body that is more water than earth. 

A body that gives under pressure from the fingertips but is stiff against the palm of the hand. 

Sometimes it is hard to remember there are bones in here, brittle things that never give (even beneath his mouth).
