On Vulnerability and Naked Skin

by joelmckerrow

She walked into the crowded room
took off her coat
took off her cloak
took off her jumper
took off her shirt
it was getting awkward.
“Too forward in her skin,”
whispered the frightened.
“Too provocative”
yelled a heckler,
“Too naked”
spoke the rest.

She gave herself too us anyway.

He walked into the crowded room
took off his ego
took off his shame
took off his insecurity
took off his control
it was getting awkward.
“Too forward in his broken”
whispered the frightened.
“Too offensive”
yelled a heckler.
“Too weak,”
spoke the rest.

He gave himself to us anyway.
