Perceived Beauty

I stand before him
             skin bare
basking in feelings of Earth,
my roots run deep
                  into Her
the dips in my skin
the same as veins in Her tree
you can’t love me,
                   I whisper
not as you are -

because my skin
             is s a c r e d

only certain eyes can see
only a soul can  F e e l
                    and love
                           and appreciate 
my flesh forces you to abandon
                   all that you know
all that you perceive
as Beautiful
all that you believed
was Beautiful
