Show me

peeling-paint-texture-background

 

Will you let me see the cracks in your paint

if I choose you to be my love?

will you let me see the softness

the vulnerable part of you that only your mother knows exists

will you let me see the holes in your armour, the

peeling paint

darling

the calloused hands are a sign of manliness to me

but you

you must show me your human-ness

show me your tears

the

holes in your armour, and cracks in the paint from the years of rain that falls

upon you

will you let me see the weathered you

the you that has been aged with the salt and the sea

with the wind and rain

lover, are there parts of you that you hide?

show me these parts of you

show me

show me the layers of you

show me the scary parts of you

I want to know the scary parts of you that no one else knows

I want to venture into your haunted house

show me your painted walls with peeling paint

show me the holes in your armour

so I can show you my armour

so I can show you holes in mine

and reveal the demons that hide behind my brown eyes
