I stood before before you naked as the day that I was born

The look on your face cut me so deep I took shelter , I hid forlorn.

Nothing to cover me, no veil no tricks had I up my sleeve

All I was, was what you saw . Words  fell from my lips they screamed to be believed.

I did not have enough hands to cover my body or my disgrace

I felt such shame for my shape I put my hands up to my face.

Cold was I and wretched my body quaking from the cold

All eyes were turned to my nakedness I felt them burning me the young and the old.

They saw my every crack and crevice  they searched my every contour

It was as if they could see every move I had made with lovers that had gone before.

Their gaze bore into me searing, devouring burning like hell’s fire

But worse I read their filthy thoughts as they let loose their unhealthy desire.

On and on they crept until they reached my soul.

Even though I begged and pleaded they took and used me and devoured my body whole.

I thought you might show mercy, I thought you might save my soul .

But you just sat back and enjoyed the sight of me being taken, used and defiled as the demons devoured my body and soul.

I stood before before you naked as the day that I was born

The look on your face cut me so deep, I took shelter , I hid forlorn.

Nothing to cover me, no veil no tricks had I up my sleeve

All I was, was what you saw . Words  fell from my lips, they screamed to be believed.

    Don’t worry. I read that final judgment is passed not by humans but by all of the animals you have ever come in contact with.

      Ah! that is comforting because I usually get on well with animals….. Not so sure about insects…. I shall be in trouble if spiders are in the equation!

    As they devour my nakedness, so shall they be cloaked and so shall they be revealed

    Peace and blessings, Willow dear,

    “I stand befor you naked/And that is not enough/I tell you my sins whole hearted/And that is not enough/I weep tears of shame unashamedly/And that is enough”

    Oh my God – on & on they crept until they reached my soul – this line really hit it hard, Willow. Your writing is so good these days. Just wonderful.
