Mirror

08 Aug

Art by Francine van Hove

She cannot see herself

as I see her.

Her mirror image rebels.

It dismisses her beauty,

refuses her desirability,

overrules her sensuality,

is cruel to her curves.

She finds herself wanting.

Whereas I

can only stare

and sigh

in awe.

    Sadly most women and I have been guilty as well think that when looking in the mirror. We are our own worst critics. Beautiful as always.

    Is cruel to her curves… love that line
    The contrasting sounds are wonderful.
    They play to the dissonance between what she sees and how he sees.
    Spot on.
