Time could pass
And I could shed

Skins

Their cool embrace;
lies – an entrapment

I discard faces
masks and body casts
saturated with

essence of me

flesh peels like rubber
exposing muscles, veins,
nerves

And I grow a new
Skin to add to my collection.

A little short, but very powerful.

Something I myself am more than guilty of. Once more, congrats.
