Looking Up

Something about her complexion

It doesn’t spell love or a need for affection

Rather, there’s a solemn silence that begs

Why do you love? Why do you think you can?

I’m baffled by the confidence, the bravado

To challenge my advances, be unashamed

Turning me away not in spite of me

But because I am not what can satisfy her

Fully, without doubt, without regret

She is someone that I’ll always adore

From afar, watching her dance late at night

To songs I’ve never heard, watch her sing

With sounds I can only dream of hearing

Born wildflower, captain of gravity

And master of unexplainable wonders

Sometimes I call her flawed, other times friend

But always a star I can look up to

Always human
