The tissue sewn
to these bones
are wearing thin.
You peel back
layer after layer
I feign distress
but I do not
want you to stop.
Because despite
all the gristle and
flexing muscle,
I have secretly
always wanted this.
I have always wanted
someone to take
the time and effort
to render me
completely exposed.
Oh look.
He's not really
all that bad
at all.

Yeah I agree with Emmy88. It's incredible~ Makes a statement---we all "hide" from the world, in some way. But every once in a while, it's nice to have someone else see your inner shell.
