And just for thought...
You sat down in front of me,
reciting poetry and watching closely for my reaction.
Knowing better yet continuing,
you spit out beautiful lines while I sat silent.
I waited to see how long you would go on,
knowing you would go on forever.
I smiled and you laughed,
telling me it was good to see me again.
You asked where I had been all your life but I've always been right here.
I had been around, here and there.
All you ever had to do was catch me.
You sighed, saying my words were much simpler then I ever could be.
I was the type of girl who would never really be caught.
That was why you loved me so, irresistibly unattainable.
You were so cute when you said the right thing but you've always known that.
You quoted Emerson, my favorite Poet.
You always used him to your advantage.
You told me your world was awful dark without my shine.
I knew it was a complete exaggeration but I liked it just the same.
I smiled as your face became stern.
I cringed, preparing for another goodbye but then you smiled again.
I realized that the prose you offered so sweetly was a new beginning.
A brand new start for the love we've never let bloom.
I blinked and you laughed.
You told me you weren't so easily pushed off anymore,
words which I secretly adored.
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
