Stripped Down

Shannon is a passionate individual whose feelings and thoughts tend spill onto the pages, often in the form of poetry and sometimes essays.


Stripped down to nothingness

I am empty now

Void of any sense of purpose

With hands tied above my head

I am naked and exposed

Feeling ashamed and humiliated

Here for you to pick apart

You'll find nothing now of worth

I gave that all away

With trust and eagerness

Only to end up here

So go on, throw your stones at me

Beat me until I am bloodied and bruised

But what is it you have really proved?
