UNMASK

Unmask.

You can let go now.

No one’s watching, but me.

Let the barriers break,

Let the walls crumble

To dust.

Loosen up,

And let the inhibitions

Slip from between your fingers like sand.

Unclothe

And let the secrets show,

Let me see them in the light

Glowing from the scars on your chest.

Open your eyes, truly, honestly,

Let me see you for who you are.

Wash your face with salty tears

That were held back for too long.

Let your lashes drip

With the sadness you hide behind wit,

And your palms bleed

With the shards of glass you’ve been holding onto.

Let your shoulders fall,

You have been upright and strong all this time.

You can let go now.

You can crumble, collapse.

You can let go now.
