A Husband's Confession

by Larry Chamberlin   Dec 24, 2011

As I dressed, sneaked occasional glances
at Rosaura standing before her mirror:
nose crinkled, staring closely at imagined flaws;
a woman at her toilet - Artemis in her boudoir.

    I like this!

    First I hope that Rosaura is the wife of the husband making the confession lol

    I love the words you've expressed "staring closely at imagined flaws;"

    This reminds me of the woman (including myself) staring in the mirror nit-picking at every flaw that we feel we possess. Saying that is imaginary makes me think that the husband cannot see the same flaws as Rosaura. He sees her as this Greek Goddess in her bedroom who he obviously admires.

    I feel this is a sensual poem which I enjoyed reading.

    Though very poetic it also reads like a journal entry, I like it
