Baring It All

The words I write bare my soul My thoughts take flight My mind unfolds I have no fear of being judged No worries of how you take my words, reputation being smudged I feel as free as a bird The rush is worth way more than gold The feeling of freedom rushes in It's like stepping out of my clothes The cool air on my bare skin Naked is the word that comes to mind Goose bumps rise upon my skin Of modesty there is no sign Oh yeah she's naked again!!

Poetry is very revealing, underlying feelings show through. I find it satisfying to be able to write in a style not available in prose or speech and I enjoy trying the many different forms.

Most of my poems are very personal and contain my most inner thoughts.

Writing poetry is very much that for me. I show myself, naked and vulnerable, to everyone who wants to see me. I write for myself, even when I enter contests. Still, having people comment, is a warm shower too :)

That is exactly what writers/poets do. They bare their soul. Some sort of cleansing I believe. Love your poem, Nikki. You grabbed my attention with a catchy title:)

Thank you. I wrote it for a contest on here. The theme was "naked". LOL
