I am

I am naked-
a book without fancy cover,
a gift with no tag or bow.

Examine every inch-
find those places I am worn,
caress me with new sensation.

Realize my story-
is not new or strange,
is fantasy fiction-and fact.

Read between my lines-
explore the details in depth,
search for my meaning, inside.

I am stripped clean-
no hidden agendas,
no secreted purpose, exposed.

Love me-
without condition,
boldly, without reserve.

Want me-
unembarrassed by desire,
without guilt.

I am bare-
brazen in body and mind,

this life is,
and I am.
