onion skin...by me (broken ladder)

like an onion
i reduce people
to tears
when i peel
myself back
to reveal
a more pungent
version
with each layer

what i reveal
is neither proud
nor lovely to behold
merely
an imperfect
organic pearl
in need of nurture,
tending

and sometimes that
is just too much to ask

Thats an incredible poem. I'll definately be checking back here for more!

I find it beautifully relatable. Sometimes the more we reveal of ourselves the more the dark side of our human nature shines through.
Its a beautiful beautiful piece of writing.
