A Poem by Deep in the Woodline...

"Self-Discovery" is not always all it's cracked up to be.

I unzipped my skin
Let it fall and
Crumple at my feet
Like dirty coveralls
My soul bare
I stand before you
Your eyes avert
Your head turns
Before you walk away

I shiver alone
Cold shadows of dusk
Hide my nakedness
From all but me
And I know now
They were right
There's nothing here
To love
Nothing here at all…

Such terrible sadness, and yes, we do shed our skin for others, and sometimes what they see is pain, but they still turn away.....such a heart breaking poem.

This is a very deep poem though I am sure that there is something there for someone to love. You just have to find the right person. It is beautifully written. Nice work
