Feel the Softness of My Skin

Slowly I will undress myself of these aches and let them flow into the river I wade through so that as I emerge I can return with silky relief on my skin. Gingerly I will unbutton my chest of these hurts that started back when I thought I was sure of decisions made on a whim in the back of black and gray cars. Then I will bare my skin and my soul to the great Earth around me and then become whole.
