Sheila Knowles


Naked

Poem by Sheila Knowles

This morning when I woke
I choked
on the freshness of your breath
that serenity
in your smile
stripped me bare
and your thoughts
dabbed their pristine fingers
inside my dirty mind

I lay there panting
wondering how you’d react
to what you found
as you strip searched me
down to the bloody raw
and flinched
at all the the ugliness
I guess
I just can't hide
my grubby nakedness
from you

    if your body is as beautiful as your mind, and I suspect it is, what's the problem?(Report)Reply
