Strip me naked,
But don’t stop there…
Peel back my flesh,
Expose my sins
and bathe in the blood
of your lies.

Nurture me raw,
Paint me with the sting
of your salt,
Soothe me with acrid words,
Drip your torture
lovingly into this mess.

Play in my darkness,
Feed it to yours,
Weave us a sanctuary…
Lie me into oblivion
until your utopia shatters
beneath the strain.

Cry me to sleep,
Plead me awake,
Self deprecate to heal
words you’ve slung,
Breathe in ragged whispers
to complete the sorry illusion.

Y.E.S 2013
