Faces

She acted many roles
    from the beginning.

    At times she fed him slivers
    of herself;
    morsels 
    of comfort to her.

    She sought
    awareness of herself.
    When she allowed 
    their intimacy.

    She would not be possessed,
    and was afraid to be known;
    thereby always holding
     the stage
    as the consummate actress.

    He was unaware of
    her love for him.
