TRUE

 

When all is still

Deadly quiet

And, I am absolutely certain she is listening

I ask,

Quietly

But the appeal echoes loudly

Through my being

Throughout my world

 

“I need help…

I want…

I want…

I want to take all this shit off!

Everything!

Burn all

Throw all away

I do not care!

But, help me, please

Peel off these disgusting layers

These artificial, meaningless wrappings

I want gone!

I want to be completely bare,

Exposed,

At risk

I want to feel the biting wind and cold

Biting into my flesh

I want to feel the horror,

Of the faceless masses

As they look on…

Aghast!

Before quickly turning away

Quickly….

Running…

Away.

I know I will fall

But, what the fuck?

I am going to fall,

Anyway.

In a world adrift in bullshit

I want to live and leave

As I came

Bare

With nothing

But completely and utterly

Breathtakingly

Wondrously

Beautifully

Miraculously

True

Before I fall

Fall

Fall

To you!”
