Naked & Rough Skin
by Navin Manik
Please don’t breathe on me with ease
Coz I’m gonna freeze your breeze with my heat
You seem to see me as if I’m a treat
But I’m here to trick your deeds with chills of my screams
You can’t hit me with crazy speed in this scene
I’m already bleeding ink while I stand here on my feet
Just don’t bleach me with your preaching
Coz then I’ll breach you with my beast & reel you for real
Can you see I’m tearing your sheets in pieces?
It’s to reveal the beautiful being on your fluid screen
Can you feel I’m breaking meaningless labels so weak?
It’s to fill the space with nothingness from the deep
Can you listen to the beats of this raw sea?
It’s just me burning freely my naked & rough skin
Welcome to MasticadoresUSA.
MasticadoresUSA features talented writers of poetry and short prose. We primarily publish writers who write in English, and are based in the USA. However, while the publication language remains English, we also welcome the work of our fellow writers from all over the world.
What do we want to bring to our readers? Edgar Allan Poe once wrote: Poetry is the rhythmical creation of beauty in words. This is what we are committed to bringing to you. And that’s not an easy endeavor.
If you want to submit, please send your work – poetry and/or short prose – to email@example.com. In addition to the piece(s), you want to have published, we need your name, and the address of your site. Submit your work as a docx attachment – not in the body of the email. Limit your submission to two pieces. We do not accept pieces longer than 300 words.
What are the themes that we are looking for? Surprise us!
However, MasticadoresUSA does not publish any work that contains racist, homophobic, sexist, and hate talk of any kind.
Looking forward to your submissions.
