As I stared into the eyes of a female
I noticed that her eyelashes were long,
Only on one eye and in
A bead of water was forming,
Just about to boil over, roll over her lid
Down her cheek, all the way to her chin
She was losing something, she couldn't win...
In her eyes
I saw her pain, her sadness
Her vulnerability mixed with madness
Open like a diary with a lock on it.
Cracked but, not enough to read the words
She was human... She had
skin that was painted so beautifully,
Contacts to cover the soft chocolate brown
Of her eyes, I guess that was her disguise...
But, her curly hair... Her black veil
Was voluminous and made me stare
Now covered one eye... She played eye-spy
As she studied me. She stared hard
Was I being played like a card?
Could she read my thoughts? Did she know
My insecurities or my love for the snow?
Could she twist my words like a bow?
Is she evil, nice, or full of spite?
Is this girl stronger than I thought?
I guess I'll know when I ask her...
Butterflies filled my stomach, a stir...
I blinked, looked forward and asked her
Her words in synch w/ mine
Lips moving at the Same time
I guess those are the things you figure out
When you are out and about
Before you raise your phone
To take a selfie, frowning all alone
