2020-09-15 – Enwombed

you’re not half as
shy as you
let on,

but i’ll only watch
what you want
to show,

it’s your mask to die
behind, wear
proud or
shatter,

but if ever you’re
ready to show me
the joker’s
scars,

i shan’t turn
my back,

i’ve seen much,
and these child’s eyes
are still shiny
and wide,

++++

besides, i’ve already caught
glimpse of the beauty
curled up cozy
inside.
