    An epiphany rose
    as I entered,
    stiffening in a chair,
    although she
    showed remarkable
    restraint: teacher,
    lover, friend. She spun silk
    words around her fingers
    cooed lullabies at me,
    slept like a wave on
    a flowing ocean
    too delicate
    to keep

    An epiphany rose
    as I entered,
    stiffening in a chair,
    although she showed
    remarkable restraint:
    teacher, lover,
    friend.

    She spun silk words
    around her fingers(,)
    cooed lullabies at me,
    slept like a wave
    on a flowing ocean
    too delicate
    to keep(.)

    A total re-enjambment suggestion and a couple of punctuation tips. Also, I broke this up into two stanzas as it's not so clumped together. These are only suggestions of course, for you to take or dismiss as you wish.

    You've trimmed the fat with this one, utilizing economy in words to present a poem with brevity and insight.

    My nitpick would be the word 'stiffening' - it just doesn't sound right - or maybe it's the syntax jump/point of view between you and your past lover that jars a bit - know what I'm talking about?

    This bit -
    'slept like a wave
    on a flowing ocean
    too delicate
    to keep'
    - was inspired in rhythm, and sensational in imagery and emotion evoked in me.

    Hope my suggestions may be of help. A touching write.
    Peace,

    Jase
