Veils

Veils

Just try!
Just try to see me.

Through the veils
I am sultry.

Veiled
I am mysterious.

Shrouded in scarlet
I am lover.

Hooded in lace
I am bride.

Just try!
Just try to see me.

My eyes cloaked
within shadows.

Only one eye
revealed to you.

My secrets concealed
behind sealed lips.

Even my body
obscured from your gaze.

Oh won’t you please just try!
Just try to see me.

Alive with desires
my aspirations visible through lace.

Shy without words
my silence so loud but you can hear.

Tender with love
I’m open for your touch.

Keen with thoughts
revealing my intensity.

Please just try!
Just try to see me.

Behind the veil’s
defense.

Under the veil’s
labels.

Without the veil’s
screen.

Beneath the veil’s
layers.

Just try!
Just try to see me,
in your mirror.
