No more dark hair

And smooth skin

White teeth shining

Behind a captivating smile

No more firm breasts

Or flat stomach

And hips that sway with ease

No more perusals

Up and down my body

No more meaningful looks

And beguiling words

Crushing stares

And sentences spoken in silence…

No more pressure

No more angst

No more worries about

Being judged and found wanting

I awake to find

I have become invisible

I breathe deeply

And smile

What a relief
