Exposed

My skin has been stretched too thin to keep my demons hidden.

The transparency of my flesh leaves me feeling vulnerable in the light,

where eyes can judge my soul…

In the darkness, I collect dust,

hoping my bones will simply become forgotten-

for the cruelty of truth will only break them

painfully slow.
