Naked in the open

What are you hiding behind?

The many words in the many books you’ve read. The lyrics you pour into your ears then repeat back slightly out of key. Sometimes a joke or two, or the smile they are meant to bring.

What are you hiding behind?

I use to use an intimidating face and muscles. I now use the very opposite, strangely it works just the same.

Some like the rain because it hides their tears.

For a while, a brief while, I was able to use money and the big home, but not the fancy car.

I personally hid a long time but now I’m open, now I’m naked.

It’s funny what you see when you realize you’re standing naked in a soul tundra with only a mirror as company

What are you hiding behind?
