I just met you Yet I feel like I know you Not a type from a box But someone who got out Explored the world for yourself I see myself in you But I see so much more You have a depth But you are still so very much here Your happiness isn't a given You have worked to be who you are I don't think I would have been ready to meet you I forgot I had a crush on you When you leaned in for a kiss I was distracted by your mind And our hours of stimulating words Our visits from others throughout the night I noticed your sense of hospitality I feel like I can articulate myself with you We both have passts That led us to the people we are
She is just like me I had wanted her but I rarely pay attention to her She sits and looks for someone to pay attention to her Yet she will get some and then nothing Ignored Feeling replaced Rejected Unloved Probably thinking I’d be better of alone and out of everyone’s way Just pay attention to me Just invite me in Don’t leave me outside in the cold Talk to me Don’t just glance at me every now and then And saying hey or something relating to the conversation Minutes pass and I’m still as quiet as a mouse My mind starts to wander My heart starts to sink My eyes just want to make a river Take me in Love me As a friend A sister Walk with me Talk with me Play with me Make me smile Laugh Just stop Making me cry And feeling left out and Alone and Unloved I am like her and she is like me We are the same in many ways But in all its changed me and maybe her
These tears I cry aren’t meant for you They are for the girl I long to return to The girl with dreams that carried her away To ideas of travel and love and to change the world, but something led me astray My heart demands that I return to that little girl ,who I held so close. My heart screams and tugs, unable to ignore, who I was once before. I’m taking my power back, the power of a girl. I take her hand and make sure to never leave her behind.
I wrote this as my soul somehow needed to share to the world what I feel other women feel at times too
