My body tells you things,
whether or not you are listening.
It speaks of storms, thunder, strength,
I could move mountains
in the blink of an eye.
It speaks of shameless desire,
controlled lust and choosey allure.
It is not a minefield,
it is not up for debate.
My body may not say
the same things your body does,
but my body is not your business.
If anything comes from Robin Williams’ death, I hope it brings more awareness to depression. Even someone so outwardly upbeat and full of life can succumb to depression.
