Beyond the View

Issues of life clothe us

they are only removed

when we are naked


touching each other's souls

eye to eye

skin to skin

no complicated fabric in between

Confusion lays crumpled on the floor

stripped with eager hands

making way for fingertips

to shoot bolts of clarity

into the seams of the mind

breath to breath

skin to skin

no deflectors in between

Letting go the fears

that dance through the mind

releasing echoes of giddy

joy tickles the lips

till you are smiling stars

reflecting brightness

into the island of iris

with its surrounding blue waters

The twinkle is lost

the minute you dress

issues clothe again

in rigid striped jail bars

I am but a visitor

hours restricted

alarms sounding for you to return

to your self-inflicted prison
