Eyes, wary from the sun
Hair tattered and worn
Skin silken like a rose petal.
“Hush” is the only thing she says
When asked what is on her mind.
Candles draw her in like a moth
Gives her the clarity she requires
In moments where she feels a little lost.
He noticed everything about her;
The way her eyes danced when she laughed
How broken pieces of her fit together beautifully
But not for a moment
Did he notice
She was nude.
