I’m Just A Girl Who Can Say No


Sun rises on a new day, but I’m still a creature of habit. I roll out of bed and head for the scales which draws me like a Siren. Surely there’s a mistake. I wiggle my feet on the scale’s cold glass, but the digital numbers remain the same. So I drag myself to the […]
