Is it really love

Her

Mother

Always said

Fancy dresses

And the handsome guys

Were for the other girls

You know, the ATTRACTIVE ones

Not the HIDEOUSLY fat ones

These words just drove them further apart

After all, food didn’t care about looks

  3. This is sad, Annette. There is nothing worse than an abusive and unsupportive mother. My Michael is a bit cuddly.

  7. A mother’s words can echo in the mind for a long time. She should have chosen them more carefully but then again, a narcissist doesn’t care how her words affect others. Horrible and sad. I’m glad you see it now for what it was, the words of one with a twisted disease. ❤ xo
