Not Mine

Her smile it lights me
Up with silver and gold
Ribbons of beauty
Ribbons of old

Her eyes capture me
Locking me away with glitter
Swallowing my soul in caramel
Swallowing my soul in amber

Her curls stalk me
Bouncing from shoulder to back
Swirls of honey
Swirls of black

Her voice loves me
Praising me up from down
Uplifting my heart
Uplifting my frown

Her status haunts me
Ripped away before I try
No chance of us
No chance I cry

Her love is not mine
