Just the Girl

But I am just the girl with old photographs.
Whose wrists are so shy they hide in her sleeves.
Sleep doesn't come easy, and waking up is worse.
The girl who plays the melody of rain in her head.
Whose words try so hard to be beautiful.
Never great, but always good.
The girl who finds comfort in cold air and full moons.
Whose mind replays memories and broken promises.
Over thinking is easy, what's hard is trying not to.

If this describes you, then you are someone I would very much like to meet. All your poems are beautifully written...Each word is precisous and thought-out. Your poems are exactly as long as they need to be... they are never any unnessary words because they each have meaning. This one's my favorite becuase it is so human and real. Well done :)
