Naked.

Here I am,
You can see me here, naked,
Nothing hiding the truth in my soul,
Please don’t look,
If you think you can’t take it,
It’s the only way that I know,
You might fall in love completely,
You might dream into the night,
You might find me looking deeply,
Into places where you cry,
Please don’t look,
If you think you can’t take it,
It’s the only way that I know,
Here I am,
You can see me here, naked,
Nothing hiding the truth in my soul.

  1. I think you captured it perfectly with the lines, "You might fall in love completely,
    You might dream into the night,
    You might find me looking deeply,
    Into places where you cry"

    perfect!

    This is also about Lennon, right?

  2. So, you put this to music, let's say Sweet home alabama, not the pickin but the full chords and sing it in a da da dada d da da dada d da da da rythm, you kind of get a cross canadian ragweed feel with good ole southern rock. It's good too, come up with a chorus and you have a hit!! Am wondering if you put some of these lines in your MSM? If not, you should have. Or, did you ensure the part about looking into places where you cry was in Knowles' EPR? Just kidding. I do like it, for some reason though, I feel something is missing, don't know, maybe something about "eyes" being they are the windows and it seems as though you're reaching out for some sort of acceptance/validation etc. Something like, my eyes yearn for what you see
    searching to fill the empty space
    the truth that lies inside of me
    open,vulnerable,full of grace
    I don't know man I'm not the poet, I just think you haven't finished this one....hey, this is like colaborating on an EPR, only there's no deadline!! Hope all is well my friend.

  3. funny you should say that about the 'sounds unfinished'... it is actually an unfinished poem. one i guess i just simply gave up on and just said "it's not going to get any better... done". and i assure you i never tho't of knowles once; really... can "you" put "naked" and "knowles" in the same tho'ts? you're a sick man... i do appreciate your words. (it just doesn't make you well) :p

    b3*... i'm glad you liked the seriousness of those words. in fact, that was the key words that led me to say "i'm done"... sometimes more is less.

  4. Your work is so moving! I can't wait to see it on something more than a webpage, a napkin, or an old e-mail! Best wishes!
