The Erotic Writer

Four writers for the price of one blog


Homo Sapiens
Is the one species
That can shed its skin
For the time being
Then unmolt again

The superficial
Stripping and donning
Of blinds and costumes;
The coy play of masks –
Only metaphor

We unbind, unhinge
Unfilter and break
In moments of need.
Step forward, and back
To primal beings

When at last laid bare,
Raw, exposed, wanting,
Know the discarded
Membrane is in fact
Our humanity

Etiquette peeled off.
And inhibitions
Dropped by the wayside
To pick up… later

How is it, after
These blazing moments
We manage return;
Willfully submit
To re-cocooning?

Reason. At what cost?
To be rebottled ,
Wound back up again.
Put masks back over
Our fierce, true visage.

Will there come a day
We’ll refuse return,
Stay wild, emergent?
I ask myself this
Each day I’m with you.

About Monocle

I am the little devil on your shoulder, stroking your neck with my tail, whispering obscenities into your ear, and looking down your blouse. One third of The Erotic Writer blog.

    a very deep thought, very well expressed in poesy.

    so intensely moving.

    “our fierce, true visage”

    what a lovely line, that.

    we put a mask over that…at what cost? (to avoid scaring the children? :) the neighbors? )

    i loved this, Raz.

    very beautiful and well written. reminds me of a poem written for book “tick tock” by dean koontz. it speaks of the shedding of skin for a different reason; freedom & free choice. well done.

    p.s. i would like to be able to read what is labeled under the Obsidian Lens. may i please have a password?

    thank you.
