Standing there, staring at the materialistic traitor, her pulse rose. It was her ending, she had to finish it. Slowly and swiftly she stripped away her last shreds of cloth.

Aren’t we all naked? Physically, mentally and emotionally. We all have a person, who has seen our naked soul, body or mind. Our naked beauty mesmerizes them, only to want them more. Making them all come back again. We have our dirty secrets, standing bare in front of that one person. Unashamed, unjudged but loved. Your nakedness holds a value in their heart. And soon you start to need them too. You’re vulnerable, gullible and weak. And then they leave. You are too much for them to handle. Too much to consume. Being alone, you cover yourself up. Covering yourself in layers innumerable.
