you are all bouncing elbows
and awkward knees
with crinkly eyes
and imperfect teeth
,
gelled up hair
and turned in toes
yet you have shot me
like an arrow from your bow
;
its easy to admit
though it seems out of place-
you are the Sun in the Spring
as it warms on my face

and that would never go away
a kind of beautiful that imprinted itself
in the places you wouldn't remember

It had been two years, but your beauty never escaped me

He was mapped out in my mind
with blank or missing parts
So I became a pirate
in search of all his treasures

It may sound cheesy
but I swear the whole world fell away
in the moment
that I was a princess
and he was a boy
as a prince
reaching out
without withholdings
