How strange she seems staring back toward me

untouched; by no scars is she marked

skin clear and gleaming; my pulse answers by quickening

nerver have I seen such eyes!

inside them I barely gleam a depth of pain

puzzled by my stare her eye's cloud till normalcy's reached

how silly I feel; I thought I had saw a touch of fear there

a creature not of the kind surrounding me; she stands patiently

interest piqued; her eye's my gaze does not leave

unfazed she does not blink and goosebumps run all along me

who is this beast my inside voice screams silently

where are the emotions she should show?!

silent now is the voice

a tremor consumes and my bodies violence is released

in my eyes both the stranger and I bleed
