Shy & Quiet

I open slowly

a slow motion opener

am I.

To show you who I am

To take the masks off

leaves me naked

and I’m shy

with my masks

& clothes

covering

the unacceptable

(I think)

parts

that are really me.

Society expects more

than I’m willing to

give often except when

I’m brave and can

just relax into my

person as if no one’s

watching.

If I trust you enough

to show you me

you have high

credentials indeed.
