Nakedness I Cannot Wear

June 22, 2015 — Leave a comment

You’re stripping me of my words
Though I wear so many
While my flesh still sweats
in sun-soaked cloth

Like the nakedness I cannot wear

Your eyes undress me with my words,
though I never stop speaking

strewing meaning across chairs
and more to find later
in stumbling rushed morning
’till there are no words.

When clothes came off
I’d been naked for hours

I wear so many
yet never enough
to ever quite cover
that I never quite know
what ever to say.
