Reflections


Inspiration. Photographer unknown

The painful gaze
The glassy haze
Of a single silhouette
Framed in chrome.
With a chip
In the glass 
Where 
His hands 
Once
Did pass.
Remembering 
The reflection  
That is 
No more,
In the
Shiny fancy mirror.
Today she
Stands alone 
Where he 
Stood behind.
Placing her
Arm over her head 
Gently led
She's cupping
His neck
As his knowing fingers  
Make their trek.
Down her body
Inch by inch,
Tracing his way
Longing for 
Another day.
Grazing her
Fullness 
Lightly
As he makes 
His rounds.
Her heart pounds.
On each
Journey down.
Down.
Down. 
Down.  
To the valley 
Of her waist,
Further still
Increasing his pace.
Moving back up
And starting again.
Eyes locked. 
Stolen time spent 
With each and every
Descent.
Taking in 
The moment 
As if it could be captured,
Heart raptured. 
Saved
For the loneliness 
Of today
The painful gaze
The glassy haze
Of a single silhouette
Framed in chrome.
