His or Hers?

Shock, a startled recognition
of truth within a mind
that's more than matter

She knew!
She always knew . . .
the subtle and yet binding
bonds invisible yet poignant
of his soul's desire

She knew!
just the affect that would allow
her entrance and acceptance
into the greater world
that mind and man evolved

Just as she knew of the manipulation
that their minds devised
even as she stoked the fires
of their desire

Yet still her eyes
in wisdom born of innocence
would tell the lie
that thus betrays it all

If only he had seen
before the fall . . .

or did he merely see
his own reflection
there within the mirror
of her eyes
and in the oh so real
projection of his soul?
