Naked

shadow_woman_blackSMWe are naked in our skin
Clothed in Friday morning
Or last week’s pain
Intensified by distance
Magnified by time
Yet misunderstood
In the nature of the day
Clear as conscience
Bathed in apathy
Like a summer rain
When it comes straight down
Forceful and blunt
The disparity clear
Between twilight and dawn
And the birth of forever
Lodged in my throat
When I look at it now
Naked as night
Seen through the moon.
