Poem: You Look at Me Gently

You look at me gently.

If they say words can hurt,
Dent the fragile frame of self-esteem,
Yours coat it with armor,
Golden, platinum, without a seem.

If they say hands can punch,
Bruise the skin and the soul,
Yours caress my fears away,
Saving me for another day.

If they say gazes can sting,
Blister, irritate the skin,
Your eyes sooth, calm,
Bring me in.

You look at me gently.
