Her Romeo

He walks right through the world so gracefully.
So confident it tears me into two.
A stride so strong, a man so proud with glee.
A girl around his arm who can intrude?

Her Romeo, she's all he has asked for.
What's wrong? I'm not the one to say my peace.
Fine lines are drawn. To his eyes, my eyes soar.
Defeat as stubborn as a rock to please.

A walk of wandering thoughts must come compassed.
Once more, he moves, he lives, he walks away.
The stride a right, will never once have crashed.
O Lord, what now? My feelings must obey.

His love shouts high, I just do not belong.
Not sure right now. Smoke hovers just too long.

It's beautiful. You do an amazing job of conveying the pain of losing love...

Wow, Meredith... That's beautiful. So full of a yearning that's strong. It conveys such a strong emotion that I can picture every part of it. The guy walking by her with his girlfriend at his side and, as if with each step farther from you, you're yearning grows..
It's ironic how the most painful of feelings can envoke the strongest inspiration.
