Poetry: “Fitting room”

A situation familiar to many, I think…

***~***~***~***

Fitting room

Peel of my skin
Exposed by the lights
Every bump
Each blemish exposed

Squeeze into clothes
Not made for you
Baggy up here
Down there much too tight

A trial, a chore
A rite to survive
Endlessly searching
For those perfect clothes

When something fits you
And compliments you
Oh, jubilation!
Oh, sound victory bells!
