September 15, 2009        Pictures of me that amuse you

(Currently used to Illustrate the Poem Naked)

Naked  (With gratitude to Ricardo Arjona and Wesley Norman)

 

So this is what it feels like to be naked.

 

You know me from my toes to my hair

To how I sleep

To the sound of the struggle

Just breathing makes

Like some ancient steam engine on a difficult incline

Naked

With drool in the night

Mouth open to let the wetness of me

Escape to a pillow

Disgusting.

 

This is what it feels like to be naked

With pictures of me that amuse you

My neck all wrong and

WTF happened to my face?

Yet you tell me you like them

Love them even

These pictures of me

I am here

Naked with tubes and wires

Blood in bags drip drip dripping down

To painful sores deep inside me

A heart ready to quit

 

I am naked and you rush to embrace me

Jump start love so strong and pure

I am slammed against the force of it

Eye to eye, I to I

Against pictures of me that amuse you

Pictures of my neck all wrong and

A strangerís face I see instead of me

Let me learn to love me

As you love me

Lift me to see what you are seeing

That I may deserve your love.
