Unmasked

Inspired by Jane Aguiar’s poem Dual Identify

If I should remove my mask
Would you still love me?
To gaze upon my face
barren and plain
Would you dare even
whisper my name?

If I bared my heart revealing all the mistakes the failed tries at a life-long love and one true mate
Would you still love me?
To see the all the scars and
heart break memoirs?

And should I expose all
that I know from depravity
to heavens pure love
Unimaginable pain to erotic release
Will you tear me to shreds leaving me
alone with my hurt piece by piece?

If I removed all the glue
to show all of me to you –
Would you still love me true?
