Beautiful





i want to see you
stripped 
of all defenses
pretenses
and adornments

disarmed 
of all your strategies
to keep yourself 
closed up
hidden
impenetrable

i want to see you
natural

with all your flaws
and blemishes
marks of aging
and scars from suffering
worn with 
candid ease

i want to see you 
give yourself up
to the wind and the rain
the black night sky
the dense, wild woods 
full of whispers
and shadows
the mighty, bottomless ocean

to the pleasures
in the living, fragrant 
flesh of nature

i want to see you
as you are

i want to know you
as you are

beautiful
