He and I

I wonder what he sees
when he looks in the mirror.
Does he see the same green eyes-
like paint watered down
to make it thin enough-
that I see?
Does he see
hair so messy and out of place
that it's unbearable;
or does he see
the perfectly crafted
golden mane
that I see?
When he looks at himself
he says he sees failure.
When I look at him,
I see an angel.
And when I search for his flaws
he disappears.
