In an unguarded moment when you feel stretched thin
Someone can came into your life and crawl under your skin.
If your skin is as tight as a drum
it will keep that special someone from
conquering your human tissue wall
preventing an answer to your heart beat’s call.
Sometimes skin isn’t flexible and too often challenged
to the point of tearing, making us feel unbalanced.
Immobile expressions covering up the skin’s form
Reshaping it to society’s perceived norm.
But skin isn’t supposed to be shaped or molded.
It was carefully laid in place, perfectly folded.
Answer to the beat that vibrates through the skin,
To really unfold the possibilities hidden within.
