Beholder: A Poem

beholder

I scoped every inch of your skin,

My fingers traced over those fading scars.

I scattered warm kisses over the wounds

And I saw my reflection in your retinas.

I could never see myself the way you saw me,

There was unmistakable awe in your every glance.

You were the beholder, I your beauty,

And it all shattered in an ephemeral trance.
