14 Apr


You stood in your lingerie

Skin pale against black

All contrasts and curves

Your reflection in the mirror

Catching me watching you.

You smiled with your eyes

Dark brown and gentle

Contact without words

Your reflection in the mirror

Sensing me wanting you.

You lowered your gaze

Remembering something

That hardened your jaw

My reflection in the mirror

Knowing I was losing you.

I wrote this poem at the end of a relationship a few years ago.  It was a real moment, and as I prepare this post, I can still see the room, the mirror, and my lover in my mind’s eye.  What I don’t know is if I invented having the sense of it being over afterwards.

    I know that feeling very well. Like a sudden punch in the stomach – or at other times … like relief.
