It’s your ManSkin

You’ve draped me in

Folded tightly within

Your clasp

Where your love for me


Where my love for you

Will always be within

Our grasp

It’s your ManSkin

As I inhale you in

All of you

Pulling on my Heart

  1. Hi Kait,

    I like the nuanced title ManSkin. It immediately speaks to me about how I present to the world. And whether in fact I have a choice. Acknowledging my manskin may please. Acknowledging I can be proud. Thank you.

      • It’s very first person (my comment) and your empathy brings that out but yeah I’m good with it. As a young man I was full of confidence. Then I wanted other things, now I’ve come full circle. You provide a great forum for these sentiments, Kait, & you should be proud of yourself for that. And keep at it. You and I both. Writers. We’re very lucky.

      • You’re so right! Life has a funny way of bringing yourself back to yourself, usually just when you need it!😁 Thank you and yes, I’m hoping to influence the world for better, one word at a time…like all of us creatives πŸ™‚πŸŒ» Blessed, we are!

  2. Beautiful Kait! Love this poem. If you have a moment, please come check out my latest poem, it’s called Synchronicity. I feel like you’d enjoy it. (By the way, I don’t know if you remember my old account – Mahbuttitches – I started this as a new one with a less, ass infused name lol)

      • Hahahahahahhaahaha!!! Love it. It’s true, I had a tough time deciding whether or not to change. I may keep
        Blogging under both one day, who knows! I heard the title in one of my favorite songs: β€œtell me a lie in a beautiful way, I believe in answers just not today” and it had been stuck since. Thank you for checking it out!
