Cover Me

Peel away every façade
Pull apart all the pretenses
Let the built up glass walls
Come crashing to the ground
Along with the insecurities
Hypocrisies and

Peel me apart slowly
But surely
Let the façade be gone

Spread your arms of love
Like wings over me
Cover me

Cover me in your truth
Cover me in your love

  1. This is a perfect poem. It works on every level because it is a prayer, a pleading for the essence of the human spirit to prevail. It also happens to read beautifully. Have you decided to read for us?

    • Thank you! Yea after I wrote it with from a lover’s perspective, I read it again and felt the prayer side of it…I embraced both views. Glad you saw it too :)
