I see into you with eyes anew
Once you said what you said-
What you said was true.
For you found me far
Away I was.  And through
Layers of skin, saw hope for love.

My presence had drifted
Until you said what you said-
When you said, I lifted
Up away from the ground
If just barely
Like a hair pulled only by a fairy.

My hand fell steadier upon your chest
As you said, and I heard, just what you said.
And said you where our bodies lay rest
Closer words to perfection within
Me wrapped in embrace.
For said things wilt unless grown in grace.


Outside, inside
Black, white.
Glass in between
You and me.

Here, come in
Inside the glass
Into the space
Out of the out.

No, outside she stays-
Inside is sane
Who? It’s hard to tell.

We’re separated
Or so we think.
By what? Glass?
Yes, if only to
Keep you out.

But a face is a covering
A faux, an image.
Who, what, lies in the skin
We don’t care-
You’re out, we’re in.

Maybe we’ve failed
A true test of time
The answer
walked away
From the glass of divide.
