A Sense of Her

Hidden inside a cotton gift bag
touch describes her

tears flow down a smooth cheek
honesty opens a crevice in her thoughts
and I feel coolness
and silkiness

Then I open the drawstring
and she falls silently before me
recovering herself
before I really know

I like the accuracy of the image of emotions peaking out before being brushed away in what I see as this goodbye gift giving.
