Appreciation and lack thereof.

Oh..she breathed,

her eyes lighting,

spilling their appreciation

between us

like so many pearls.

Pools of need.

I stepped back

out of the brightness,

of her eagerness

to appreciate.

The brighter she became,

the darker my mien.

Don’t you see?

It is not me you should be looking at,

but the painting.
