René Magritte – “The Beneficial Promise” 1927

_____________________

Even though it is my flesh

It doesn’t feel like it belongs to me

You will tell me a million sweet lies

Suggest

Manipulate

Demand

When I give you what you want

You are grateful

At first

Then you think I give it up too easily

You get angry

Call me names

Forbid me from sharing my flesh with another

And I don’t

Because I fear he will be like you
