YOUR SKIN

#LovePoetry Day 3 Assignment

I know what you show me differs from what others see

Mass appeal begats familiarity

But I honor the layers you’ve 

Cautiously unveiled 

Intermittently you flash me

Fully clothed 

Behind your shield

Your skin

It embodies what I long to hold

Dare I taste bronze?

Dare you strike gold?
