Poem: Stripped Bare

Soul shocked,
such latency
brief as the kiss of dagger
the stealthy drop thereafter.
Many-a-cry for a reprieve
grieving the deliberate deed
why sow a seed, poisoned
if poison is all it will be?

Bring with you your desire
wrapped in a little ball of fire
set alight these frozen hearts and numb minds
perhaps from poison you’ll churn the nectar of life.

Bring with you your desire
bring with you
stripped bare of the mould that shapes you.

Come. Lay yourself bare.

I'm a writer of stories I'd love to read. I dream of being a best-selling author one day, but don't we all? I'd also love to work as a scriptwriter in Hollywood. Dreams that seem impossible really, but I'm gutsy/dumb enough to try. l love all things paper and pen. Believe me, I collect them. I write novels, poems and scripts. I paint. I have two Kindle novels, In Strange Company, and Charming Mr. Stewart on Amazon.com Follow me and my progress on my blog, www.papermashed.com, on Twitter @evacharya, Facebook 'Author/Filmmaker- Eva Acharya', and sign up for my email.
