Gaze

I see myself reflected back in your gaze

The better part of me

The me you make me believe I am

You have that kind of power

(and you know it)

To strip me away

Until I am completely unvarnished

And yours

Naked and unafraid

Not so that you can remake me

But that I can do it on my own

As you watch with a smile

And say “good girl”
