Finding you in the dark

 overshadowed
halfway: finding fears

 in structured bones

 trick of light
leads my hands to believe
          differently

 scars hidden
           in the shadows
 never inspired
           blood filled
        words.

 lines in your mouth
               blur
 on the side

     pupil and iris
              edge
           on white

     blending into shadows
                  if not
            for purity
       and discomfort.

smooth
  under my skin

the gleam in your eye
         heightens blue
                depths

      shadows cloaking
             beauty

   present in both sides

only truly valued
            in the dark.

              my swollen eyes
                        will not
         be able to weigh
                       value
                upon softened
                       lips
              perfectly molded

listening to my stares
           I wonder if
you know how priceless
            you are
                    in the dark.
