    i'm just a girl
    with stars in my eyes
    despite the many attempts
    to dim them
    my head may be in the clouds
    but is that such a bad place to be

    i'm just a girl
    with a broken heart
    that still somehow
    believes in love
    i may be a glutton for punishment
    but there's no life without it

    i'm just a girl
    no one special
    and i'm getting nosebleeds
    from this pedestal
    i really don't belong here
    i've done nothing to deserve it

    because...

    i'm just a girl
    who stood before him
    and asked him to love me
    but i don't think he heard

    Nice...

    makes me feel bad
    for the way i acted
    in past lives
    sigh...
    don't worry
    karma is a b*tch
    and when the tables get switched
    you'll be the one riding high
    so don't be afraid to let
    your heart
    take wings
    and fly...
    :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

    Hey...I sure hope you're right. But right now, I'm flyin' all on my own. Love will come when it comes. Thanks for taking the time to read me.

    BTW: I liked that flow!

    You will Dream Weaver. There's no possible way you can have a name like that and stay grounded. Thank you for the response to this one.

    You are hardly just a girl.... nor just a woman... or "just a" anything.... and this poem is exceptional per usual.

    your friend,
