Bare

Lay yourself bare

soul to the light

eyes like the sun

peering at you

and what you hold inside

 

Lay yourself bare

layers peeled back

slight but open

waiting to be seen

for that acknowledgement

that nod of yes

 

Lay yourself bare

but remember that

with that joy of being seen

you open up to the

pain of remaining invisible

the heartache of no reciprocity.
