How Do They Love?

The eyes of another observe
They see what you don’t
Compassion and understanding
They see the incredible
That you gloss over as nothing
Too focused on mistakes
Faults and flaws hurled
In painful glib remarks
Hidden behind comedic honesty
How can they love
That which you hate in the mirror?
