when you kiss me.

You kiss me

And everything collapses inside 

My masks

All thought, 

All memory

All ideas. 

You kiss me

And blow the dust from my soul

Shaking off years of dirt and grime, 

Setting me free with your fingertips

Meeting my fire

With your fire

A delicious heartfelt explosion

That reveals


We used to hide. 

There is no hiding here. 

There is no possibility of concealing our broken bits and torn, tattered edges

You kiss me

And everything I thought I was 

Gets blown to bits

And I step forward, 

As who

I really am.
