I caught my reflection by her
silk spun lips; She was
as beautiful as the slender
moon. She doesn't say
hello too often but this
time she lingered quite a bit longer
than usual - so it sounded by the
ticks on the old grandfather
clock down the hall.

What a delicate heart she holds.
How heavy it must be to carry - I
could see the weight in her
rain cloud eyes. She has never looked
so sweet, to me, even with those
hollow bruises underneath. Terse
or not, I found my marrow. And while
I could not keep hold for long; it was
something that had been lost for such
a long time. It is still there, I see -
I have seen.

How hastily I fell for her disastrous nature.
She's so afraid, you can tell, but her
baby cheeks hide these dimples that
hold every ounce of her innocence.
So swollen and youthful, I dare not
touch the dream that is her velvet
skin, for I may break the most
fragile thing to ever be
kissed by the northern lights.
This came about upon looking in the mirror before going to bed. This was one of those rare occasions where I see something beautiful (imperfections and all) instead of picking myself apart. I thought it was noteworthy. You need to love yourself sometimes, you just do.

I love the contradictory descriptions, the "delicate" but "heavy" heart (not entirely contradictory, but normally delicate connotes something light) as well as the "velvet" skin that might "break" ( you cannot break velvet, maybe cut it). I also, inexplicably, love the phrase "silk spun lips".

Despite the fact it bordered on narcissism (lol we've all been there) this poem made me fall in love with you. The imagery is familiar and warm like a dream, and rustles in my love of nostalgia.

I apologise for the falling in love part, and here's for the you being awesome part 'virtual high five'

Hahaha for the years that fly by despising yourself I will definitely take five minutes of being a narcissist! This is an absolutely wonderful compliment, I truly appreciate your time. Thank you so very much. 'high five!'

Everyone needs a healthy dose now and then of thinking they're the new black. (don't despise yourself, the world needs us poets <3)

I had a look at a few of your other poems too, I like your style guurrrl 'snaps fingers and shakes head' damn straight
