line of skin




I bare my body,
offer every flawed 
line of skin 
to you


my heart is young, 
I bite my palmed 
confession of desire,
begging countenance 
for these unwanted
imperfections

  4. An interesting drawing Rick
    but you gave it life
    with your poem of love
    To offer ourselves
    is a gift...and yes it is the flaws
    that find the other piece of the puzzle to create a perfect fit
    my motto has always been...sleep naked
