Mask of Living Flesh

Mask of flesh
strip me away
reveal the naked sincerity
Peel the corruptible chaff riddled in backward stricter
Oh to be cleansed raw with desire from real eyes

Watch out for those smooth gainsayers
liars who deny fleshlings the grace of coming into age
Blackhearts with stories that youth is never left behind to rot unloved
Blur on your truth mirror

Flesh outed
we be souls anchored in mortal clay
Reach for the bones of a believer who has walked the dire
not afraid of the dirt you may bring to the door
a companion who gets the spit of life

Touching forward
feel the softness highlighting outspoken skin
hear the voices of roughened tincture singing lullabies
Share the garment of inspiration
find the light and dark within

Mask of living flesh
oiled cloth keeping eclectic breath warm
Skin lined in life’s lithography printing our unique story
A husk’s whispering of our name until dust to dust and flesh is no more
