“Tighten / And ripple / And ache / And redden.”

                    

Tighten

And ripple

And ache

And redden.

 

To feel

To see

To look away

This way.

 

To  look in the mirror

I see myself in his smile

And I know you see it too.

 

It’s agony

To know

What you don’t know

And that you’ll never know.
