Deformity Cursed -- A micro poem for you tonight

Something Very Personal

I studied my naval in disbelief
There's no heavenly way this could be mine
Swollen beyond recognition. Can't be

Extended, distended, puckered outward
Yellowed worse than an ash tree in the fall
Red spots scattered indiscriminately

Oh dear, I sense an end to my love life
Would there be such a kind soul having me
How could one love me now? Worse than a wart

Not a nightmare, no.  Deformity cursed

Tonight I am linked to Kerry O'Conner at Up Close & Personal - Micro Poetry
http://withrealtoads.blogspot.com/2015/10/up-close-personal-micro-poetry.html

Her challenge was to write an 'up close and personal' poem with only TEN lines, a Decastich.  
Mine is in Sonnetina Uno form:  http://www.thepoetsgarret.com/decastich.html

Oh this is exactly a sight you don't want to see.. I cringed at the description and started to pick at my own navel..

Low humour - pardon the pun. I am sure the navel has never been so intimately poeticised.

I'm torn between laughter and sympathy, Jim.

Oh dear! But delightfully penned, and such wit with the pictures.
