Please

So, there you are!

Please
do not hide yourself.

Not anymore,
like Eve
who hid herself
ashamed
of her own nudity,
afraid
of judgment
or abuse
who knows ...

But please,
don’t hide yourself
I wish to see you
meet you as you are,
not just
your outside nudity
however beautiful you look,
but no,
beyond that outward nudity
I wish to meet you
as you are,

the one that looks at you
and only sees
the physical aspects
of what you are

you hide yourself
for all that kind of eyes?

I understand,
but please
don’t hide yourself from me
I wish to know
the inner you
and watch
with wonder
what that nudity reveals.

So please
...
