My Poem, in response to Painting #6



Warily,
I present myself.
Denuded,
open to you.

Inner fears
enwrap me,
covering my courage.

Watchful of the dagger
which once
laid waste
my soul.

A brother
evil incarnate,
forming fears
bruising them.

I remain
in fearful stasis,
desiring
afraid.

Absolute serendipity...I was going to pick this picture too...

Perfect poem Vince~intense and sensual with a twist I did not expect.

Shoot V. I try hard not to over personalize when I read your work, but the depth is sometimes terrorizing. I think if this person responding to painting #6 is being enwrapped in inner fears, I am going to make it a point to get him a better blanket! How about soft down??
