naked truth

What if I asked,
for you to remove that mask?
I want to see if you're true,
if underneath, it's really you.

And with each turn
of opportunity I have asked
of you to see me and
to quit requiring me to put

my mask back on...
realise, unmasked value:
this is me, and all of who I am;
hopefully, that is enough for you.

This us actually very romantic. Can anyone really remove all the masks we have put on over the years to protect our fragile souls and broken hearts ? I find it a very sensual thought to trust someone so much as to let all the masks fall to the floor one by one, and stand there, naked, vulnerable. A beautiful thought.
