Closer

A face that’s long and lean
And speckled with
A fresh stubble

Eyes and cheeks gaunt
Like the craters on a
Lonely planet

The long torso, bottomed
By an endless length
Of muscle drawn taut

The inscrutably deep mind
With words that were
Never said

Allow me the lowering
Of those blinkers
And let me be seen

I’d like to come closer
And know for sure
You are no illusion


Reflection

It was a moment of surprise

When I darted to the basin

With a circle for a mirror

And caught there

The most beautiful

Of my own reflections

 

Caressed by the afternoon light

Filtering in through the

Porous curtains

My face assumed an elegance

That made me halt and

Acknowledge it

 

Not very often am I gifted

Such moments of radiance

And I stood enamoured

Pride creeping through my lips

I watched myself

As I would watch

The declared beauties

Of this world

 

It’s special for it showed me

Who I am

And how I should be

Seeing myself

I am beautiful

And maybe I’ve always

Known it

But today,

I shed the modesty

And embraced

Myself


Believed Denial

She weren’t ever more beautiful

Than when you told her so,

And she denied it

With belief.

In the contrary, lay her belief.
