Glorified Selfie
 
I saw myself through someone else’s eyes
It wasn’t what I expected
Not nearly half as bad
The blemishes were porcelain
The worn out look
Carried commonalities amongst friends
Confidence had been fully enabled
No need to put up the facade
Edges were softened
As shadows cut where they belonged
Lips pulled every moving body inward
Calculating how to attach
For any amount of time
Because there is fragrance
In an untamed
Yet
Passionately honest heart
That is what I saw
That is what I felt
That is what I lay down before you
Always on bended knees
