Come Here


Come here.
You.

Come here.

Let Go.

No words here.

No talk here.

Come close.

Breathe here.
Stand here.

Offer here.

No justifications needed.

Open your eyes
let me see your Soul
here's Mine;
no need to possess
just to experience
the human experience
encountering the other;

toss away the make-ups
the don't look at me's
the See Instead Who I Want
To Portray Me As.

Naked,
I am
having summoned Bravery
no Make-ups
no Distractions
no Illusions
no Possessions
no Image Projected
upon my Personality Wall
my Face Book Likes.

Just me.

Come closer.

Let Me See
You.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
