hey-i stumbled on this community through reading andrea's writing...which by the way is amazing. I mostly just write poems and i regret that i get stuck reading school books instead of others that would increase my vocab etc. I love reading other people's writing. I love the depth of writing. Anyways...i don't really let other people read my poetry because it's a serious and personal part of who i am but i'm interested in seeing what people think and i'm finally getting some courage to share. I hope all of you enjoy as much as i enjoy reading your writing.

I wrote this tonight/today? missing someone...

peel back the rind
what i wouldn't do now
to catch one scent...
one breath you gave me

peel back the rind
you did it to me
am I better off?
or just missing you

peel back the rind
i'm so slow
I lost you in the process of me
I don’t want the relief anymore

Peel back the rind
Turn back time
Or just tell me
Time will bring us back

Peel back the rind
I only have words now
To try to explain
So much more that was meant
By peeling back the rind

i may change and add more later...

It may just be me, but I don't really understand the "peel back the rind" part. Care to explain?

It seems to me what she ment was somthing along the lines of "look into my mind" by saying peel back the rind. Because rind is usually the outer coating of somthing.

yeah, i can be vague sometimes in poems but it is about letting someone see into me and how they made me vulnerable
