What if I told the truth,
stripped bare, and laid it
down in the brightest sunlight
for you to examine closely
as a jeweler does a diamond?

What if what you saw there
was not what you wanted
to see, if there were flaws,
if the facets weren’t uniform?
Could you accept it?  Me?

Part of me wants to do it, to see;
part of me wants to bury it underground, deep.

Author’s Note: Written for Day 7 of the Writer’s Digest Poem-A-Day Challenge, “a ‘what if’ poem.”
