Skin

Open me.
Unwrap my skin.
Tear it off
In excitement,
And see what’s within.

Gift wrapped.
My body a bow.
Peel back the layers.
Enjoy the show.

Prise me clean,
From head to feet.
Take a moment.
Smile.
Watch my frail heart beat.

Now you have me.
Exposed. Raw.
Now you leave me.
Walk slowly.
I’m nothing you haven’t seen before.

    • Wow!! Thank you so much! I actually wasn’t sure if it was a step too far (skin peeling and all that…), but you absolutely got the message I was trying to portray. Thank you again! Totally made my Monday! 🙂

      • You’re welcome!!
        No, not at all. It’s really great that you’ve went this far. Don’t be afraid to lean just a little bit further out of the window. It’s a great feeling to write something that needs a little bravery to write and publish.
        Hope you’ve had a wonderful monday BB! 🙂
