There's those faint freckles in the middle of the summer
Dark, but sun-kissed hair, wild and crazed
A laugh you can hear from down the street
Eyes coolly hiding behind those signature aviators
She's so confident.
Good at everything she does, and she does everything
It's annoying, perplexing. I want to be her.
She doesn't care what you think, but she's also kind and courteous, compassionate and curious. She's strong and resilient, the kind of woman who stands out in a crowd without asking to. She's never afraid. Thoughtful and observant, she can probably see right through me.
Men have always been drawn to her.
She could never resist them either, with a love every time that would leave a heart racing, throbbing, aching, longing, stinging. If I'd broken that many hearts, or had mine broken that many times, I think I'd say Love isn’t for me.
And she's smart too, really smart.
Get inside her head; get lost in that depth, sift through the ideas, and revel in her library of facts and fiction. But so unassuming, she’s refreshment to monotonous, gray drudge. Take comfort in the time she makes time for you, for me. We are special.
She is poetry to me. She is a collection words, a sensation of feelings I could never capture here. She is eloquence but not refined, a mystery novel opened on your bedside table.
But I haven't seen her in so long, it makes my heart ache. I don't know where she's been or when she'll be back.
She's probably in the wilderness somewhere, living a simple life. Or maybe she moved overseas. Maybe she's writing her book. Maybe work sent her away. Maybe she’s climbing the professional ladder in the City, planning her next move. Maybe she just needed a change. She had so many plans, I'm sure she's chasing her dreams.
But yes, I miss her, this is true.
She is lovely. She is formidable. She is everything I want to be. She is me.
