her familiar image

She is familiar
like a distant image of yourself.
You look back
through a relationship
that began in Her eyes.

She appears
as a mirror of all the people
you have managed to avoid.

She becomes more familiar
the more you make love to Her.

You have less and less to say
while Her hand writes you.
