Naked Again

I hover over a feeling
Carefully, I unfold the layers and tear them back
Whispers, voices
A shiver from within
Time ticks over, anti-clockwise
Tomorrows are filled with yesterdays
Shamefully, I hide beneath the covers
Alone, lonely
The seconds feel like hours
The shadow forever a perfect silhouette
A burning desire
Impulsively, I want to shed the layers
Silent screams, secret dreams
Forever hovering
When will tomorrow come
When will I be
Naked again


I try to move forward…but the barriers are always there…I want to let them down.

    kimmyjade – this is such an introspective conundrum – love the way you’ve brought the pst present and future all into these lines…and infiltrated the barriers between boundaries of time and geography making them mutable.

    A lovely read
    thanks
