    Hi i wrote this poem in 2002 i was 2 stone heavier thn my current weight .........


    THE BLIMP

    The only time i feel the guilt
    Or loathe the way my body's built
    Is on occasions very rare
    I leave the comfort of my chair

    To venture out among the crowds
    Wearing clothes that resemble shrouds
    Waddling around, breathing in
    Desperately wishing i was thin

    I promise myself 'i will lose this weight'
    So next time i'll be looking great
    So a week goes by i feel an urge
    Its comes again an eating splurge

    Another week the diets done
    i forget all about having fun
    i dream of takeaway all i can eat
    i can see my stomach but not my feet

    So embarrased i've become
    that people laugh at my big fat bum
    baggy trousers tent like shirts
    don't stop those jibes, they really hurt

    Wish me luck it's really tough
    but i am sick of looking and feeling rough
    I am out of breath i feel unfit
    All this food makes me feel like sh*t

    So now the time is finally here
    to lay off sweets and crisps and beer
    to slim it down lose that weight
    till i am looking and feeling great .

    I found this today clearing out some old letters made me realise that i have been a blimp for too long now . x

    Words from the heart that ring true with so many of us here.

    Brilliant wordmanship, think it would be published.

    I love the poem as it really spoke to me but what really hits home is your comments about the period of time you have felt like this :(

    Hi,

    What a truly truly fantastic poem. I too identify with it and can totally empathise. I also wrote poetry quite a bit when i was down and a teenager, those poems are horrendous if I read them back but I am not sure whether i kept them.
