To the girl

To the girl who grew her hair

past her shoulders.

 

There is something about you

 

something I always knew,

yet never guessed,

dreamt of perhaps

but could never imagine how

you would dress:

 

heart on your sleeve,

golden round,

boots and morning blood,

 

you sparkle like dew,

a cobweb in sunlight,

glitter and sweat,

kisses in the rain,

the virgin snow,

 

you thunder and lightning,

boom-box and shipwreck,

house fire ruin

and seven circles of chaos.

 

There is something about you

 

the inhale, the exhale,

the determination, the beauty, the living.
