is beauty superficial?

I was there
and couldn’t figure out
exactly what
she was speaking of
what she was seeing

then looking
through her eyes
I was able to grasp on
an elusive

holding on to it
suddenly I was
by a chilly feeling

out of joy
I started crying

I was seeing it
I was seeing the beauty
she was seeing

I saw myself
