Hell, I have been shaving for fifty years and the face I see today when I wipe the mirror is one whose secrets I'm glad I forgot. But the face I was shaving at first was so beautiful. Would we really like to know more than one person that well??
This poem made me think about that. "If I leave you alone ..." is the line that brings it all together.
I so like this verse-form too, and you do it well. Sorry, I'm a useless critic today but enjoyed reading your work!
