guarded

 
it's a tango
with a blindfold
this dance of sharing me
carefully opening
without inadvertently exposing
too many secrets
because I can lower veils
layer after layer
until all my curves show
but reserve full showing
for private viewing
not everyone
earns complete nudity
because here’s the reality
it's about connecting through pain
not brandishing my name
who I am
is not my identity
at the end of the day
what you see may affect you
but
I have to live it
outside
the glowing screen
and that
is much easier done
