    You’d think she’s flying, constantly flying,
    she can be so dramatic sometimes,
    perching her fantasies on rails in upright positions,
    begging, without ever saying a word, for attention….which she already always has,

    you’d think that I love her, hopelessly,
    how something about her creates shivers in me,
    separating me(inside) from me(outside),
    until there’s nothing but lust with a personality complex…
    but, it isn’t love,
    that’s how she affects all people,
    men and women, all diverging on unfamiliar paths,
    just to draw a look, a smile….
    perhaps some exotic thought,
    only slightly erotic in nature,
    some thread of evidence that says
    she might be interested

    you’d think she never cries,
    it maybe true,
    her eyes do have the appeal
    of catacombs of joy,
    maybe sorrow is too intrigued
    by the way she half walks, half floats along a beam of light
    (probably lunar, cause midnight seems to be her finest hour)

    you’d think she’s always happy,
    cause she’s the most attractive,
    most distinguished
    most recognized, and idolized,
    revered, and lusted after,
    loved and discussed,
    most graceful, and contemplated,
    most appealing
    even most debated…
    even the hate transcends petty hate
    a loathing that’s almost sacred

    so,
    I guess you’d think she’s always flying someplace where attention is constant
    and she’s always loved,
    and she never cries,
    and she’s always happy…..
    wouldn’t you think?
