Your body is fragile and smooth
like the clear glass I drink from.
Your quiet voice has little to prove
growing in size the further you run.
As the suns rises, light shines through
the prism of your transparent body
and when the sun goes down
I reflect on the lessons you taught me.
I find it hard to gaze into your eyes
because I notice a past dark and empty
But my eyes gaze harder to no surprise
because your history is so temping.
I look harder at the clarity you reveal
and why a light shines through you.
I look at you and begin to feel
that my light might shine too.
I stare one last time into your eyes
then I walk away and disappear
because there is a life to be lived
away from the mirror.
