Let’s strip away these layers, one slow peel after another and expose what’s beneath this shelter of skin and bones. Let’s lie open, willfully allowing even the darkest recess to be explored. Let’s tear down these walls, chipping away one stubborn stone at a time and lie belly to belly with nothing between us except what is us. It’s not just about exposing the demons, demons are easy to shed light upon. The true measure of the soul is exposing the hope. Hope is what feeds us. Exposing our hopes, exposes us to the chaos that is our soul bursting from within. It is responsible for all of our true fears, for without it, we would simply have no will to exist. Let’s just lie here belly to belly with everything between us.
