Perfect and illusive
with a sparkle in her eyes
leaving you helpless but to wonder
where in the world
her heart lies.
Heated silence draws you in
a thousand mysteries in her smile
captivated by the possibilities
electrified by curiosity
In the backdrop of
people you wish you’d never met
you can’t help but feel the urge
to take the steps towards her
approach as close as you can get.
For a while
she dances to your tune
laughter and teasing
joy ever increasing
but you can’t shake the feeling
that it’s going to end soon.
She dances on the fabric of your dreams
Light steps and pirouette
Close but never within your reach
Some day she’ll leave you
and that will be okay
she’ll always be a part of you
a fragment of yesterday.
She would never mean to hurt you
but she won’t stay by your side
she has places to go
and people to know
the beauty in her stride.
Let her go where she needs to go
but keep her in your heart
keep her in your beautiful soul
and you’ll never be apart.
