Her Reaction

She loved the images
Captured
As seen through
His eyes

Those things he finds
Beautiful
Those things that fill
His soul

Her sadness arose
Not from the images
Themselves

But in the fear
That never
Would she be
One of them

She is not the girl
He once knew
A completely different
Woman
He is just now
Coming to know

She no longer
Sees herself
A beautiful being

But a creature
Of spirit
Trying to leave
Her mark

In her struggle to
Maintain composure
In her fear
Of staying alive

She looked at those
Women
Having shed their
Inhibitions

Posing for him
Creating art
And it made her
Heart hurt

For opportunities
Missed
For years that have
Passed

And for her own
Inhibitions
Stolen in her youth
