Stripped Naked

I whisper this
in a stolen moment.
There are no curtains
to hide behind.
I dig deep inside for
the courage
to say what I feel.
I’m up on stage.
Stripped naked for the world
to see.
Shadows can’t conceal
the truth.
I may not be a sculpted,
symmetrical, specimen.
or a flawless example
of divine design.
For this,
I know,
is real.
I expose my
private parts
to you
Ripped jeans
provide a glimpse
of my bare knee.
An unbuttoned shirt
may show a nipple.
This is less scandalous
than the emotions
in my words and
poetry,
I give to you my energy,
my essence, my soul.
My defenses are down.
My inhibtions melt
in the heat of passion.
I’m not a slave to the latest
fashion.
Sharp dressed men
wear camouflage.
Silently wishing
they could
show
what is behind
the jacket and tie.
