Comparing Her


She is almost like a breeze, if she weren't so ill at ease
but there's a comfort that she brings.
There is something in her touch
of the bristle of a brush
painting on my numbered scene.

I see her shifting in her sleep
a gentle rising from the deep.
Her sorrows hard to count as hairs,
a girl eavesdropping on the stairs,
is always what she seems.

Her body like a trembling reed
in a hurricane of need
but she still knows how to laugh.
A fragile light that sets the stage,
a steel bar inside a cage -
calculations of the aftermath.

Her voice is like a question mark
that hangs twisting in the dark.
Her sorrows hard to count as hair,
a girl eavesdropping on the stairs
is always what she seems.


I see her shifting in her sleep
the gentle rising from a deep
disturbing dream.
Her sorrows hard to count as hairs,
a girl eavesdropping on the stairs,
is always what she seems to be to me.

She is almost like the wind
but comparisons must end there.
