Take It Off

Go ahead.

I dare you.

Take it off,

take it all off.

Bare your soul

and strip away pretenses;

let go of Halloween masks

invented to disguise

inadequacies, insecure crevices in

paper-thin skin.

Let them fall,

meteors of rotten flesh,

crisp lying remains of misplaced notions.

Take it all off.

Embrace the Fall!

It is the you disrobed,

unveiled,

exposed to autumn breeze,

that is breathtakingly beautiful.

Peeled,

 bare,

naked

you.
