The Mirror Whispers her Name.......

But only while the lights are dim as brushed
hair finds the perfect pose
a good hair day.....
Or was it the scent of perfume ........
the powdered reminders of rose
holding my attention
I could watch her each night
as she dresses for the mirrors
But then secretly I approach from
unseen hiding
Invisibly touching her hair
and as her hand reaches behind her
neck I touch her fingers
in secret .........
I wish she loved only me
But all I have to
offer is a whisper
reflected from the dresser
mirror.....
But ...but reflect it does
just enough to make her
smile
