Not Even My Name

I know every curve to your face
Every blemish and line

I could tell you all your favorite songs
And all the lyrics to them too

Your favorite colors royal blue
But you hate baby blue

You like green eyes
Love the way they shine in the light

Little kids annoy you
But you plan on having six one day

You want to be a musician for money
Until then you play for the love of music

You’ve fought many fights
Lost a few, got scraped and bruised

Cried only once in your life
That was when your mom died

And what do you know of me
Nothing, not even my name

Beautiful!!!!! There's such a story lurking in and behind this poem, it tells all whilst hinting all and telling nothing.
