standstill

Stand naked before her - hold
your breath and listen to her words
listen
to their absence;
Be still
         and wait
until the girl in the mirror
tells you it is safe.

I can't help myself, I have to express my reaction: this poem is very, very good ... such a wonderful construction, such a wonderful idea so well executed ... your artistry continues to grow

This is really good. I like the imagery as much as the truth of it.
