Beauty Mirrored

They stood before each other
Sure of the other’s beauty
And suddenly stilled in the confidence of her own.
The “I wish” and “if only” rose
Darkening cheeks and shifting eyes
They could not escape the taboo desire
To acknowledge beauty in both her and her too
Because this world has been trained
To think only black or white.
