    i stood nakedly before her.
    she had taken off all my clothes.
    with my insecurities revealed
    i stood before her
    naked and unashamed.
    with all my bumps and bruises exposed
    all my cuts and curves surfaced
    she read the story of my lives
    as i had lived many lives
    and died many deaths
    and she read me...
    so plainly
    so clearly
    form the tattered remains
    of a body once beautiful
    birthed in perfection
    battered by imperfections
    my genesis in purity
    my exodus into into impurity
    my revelation of humanity
    i was naked
    and she kissed my every wound
    with love and affection
    that made me whole
    she kissed my scars
    with a balm of knowledge and understanding
    for as i stood naked and ashamed of me
    she did not judge
    she did not run away
    she did not condemn
    but by her commitment to me
    she brought me to a state of being - unashamed.

    wildflower7 - be sure of this - no man will ever become the man he was ordained to be until he is grounded in the love of a woman who draws the best out in him. much love sis!

    if he abides alone, he remains incomplete, with out the most complementary part of self - his missing rib!

    Wow...to find someone who can be that for you, not a judge, but one who helps to heal and uplift, what a beautiful thought expressed into verse.
