She asked me to strip, so I did.
I took off my pride
The mask I wore over my scars
“You are beautiful despite them”
Her balmy voice soothes.
I took off my fear
That had bounded me in chains
I jumped into the unknown
She held my hands tight.
I took off my shame
Wrapped tightly between my legs
I was in the open, I was free
I hear her squeal in delight
I took off my doubts
That were growing under my skin
To show the red flesh of my love
She couldn’t stand the sight of it.
So she left wearing all my cloths
And I wait for the winter ahead.
