Willingly Naked

Postby Olsenpotter » Fri Feb 14, 2014 9:16 am

I just wanted to share the poem I wrote for my wife for Valentine's day.

Willingly Naked
There are so many disjointed parts to me I feel like a mirror hit dead center with a sledgehammer.

What keeps me together? Why does my reflection not display the dark, jagged edges filling my insides?

The answer is simple: like a master artist, you’ve taken the fragments of my being and fused them into a stain glass window.

My appearance, outside and in, has undergone a metamorphosis at your touch.

My pride is in your arms.

My success is in your smile.

And I can face the sun willingly naked confident your love has framed the shards of me into a masterpiece of a man.
I'll leave you a note in the freezer.
