Raw Beauty (1)
Behind the casing when all the cover is on the floor
Naked emotions lay waiting for judgement
A oainful discovery of who to depend on,
While the agony of dread passes through you as a whole.
Scars searing and bright, lay for all to see, peeking
Out from beneath the bandages you sewed in place.
Trying to cover the painful reminders of past mistakes.
You hoped one day would be revealed,
and the beauty of emptiness in its place.
Looking layer after layer of masks upon the floor
You realize how little they knew of you, of your soul.
