He saw her
Saw straight through the facade
Past the makeupand clothes
Her hard set smile and razor edge posture
all meant to keep everyone at a distance
He saw the delicacy of a heart thats been shattered
A wounded soul, like his own,
that yearns to shed the pain of yesterday

His gaze caught her off guard
The sincerity and concern was unsettling to her walls
No one ever took the time to show they care
Seeing the reflection of her soul in his,
scared her to no end
In that moment she at felt peace
Every wall ever built collapsed
With the soft breathless “Hello” and a brush of his lips
Her heart began to heal
