Overview

You Said You Wanted to See Me Naked: An Autobiographical Poetry Cycle by Tracey Morris

Sometimes, at night, when I'm all alone,
and my still house is curtained midnight blue,
and the only sounds that battle the ceaseless silence are old floorboards yawning, cracked plaster peeling,
the foundation setting free spectral stories long suppressed,
I crane my neck, and lean into the darkness so I can listen to my home sing me a lullaby.
I open my shuttered eyes, flatten out my palms,
and wrap myself around myself so I can caress the encircling silence,
watch the world waltz in the moon's shadow,
and wait for the world to reveal answers to questions I don't know how to ask.

About the Author

Tracey Morris comes from a family of artists and creative talents. Her cousin is Richard Lewis, an award winning painter whose works have been displayed in museums and galleries around the country. He challenged her over the years to pursue writing as a vocation and not merely a hobby. In 2009, Ms. Morris officially began her writing career, and quickly became a featured reader at several Detroit area venues. She is a proud member of DUPAAS (Detroit Unity Poets and Authors Sociey), and studies poetry writing with Springfed Arts.
