you were always better than me
with your slightly crooked smile and dazzling blue eyes

there was something about you
that drew people in

i wish you well 
i wish you wings

there isn't a more selfless person that i know
i would place the forbidden fruit in your palms
and then write poetry about the sky

i would walk home with you through an earthquake
and whisper compilments in your pierced ears

you like wearing big hoops and cropped jumpers
and making people smile

you always were better than me.

    Oh you just made me... I don't know how to explain it but I could feel the emotions. I first thought it was a break up with a friend but you lost someone didn't you? I'm so sorry, I've known the feeling. You pushed that feeling into me from behind your computer screen all the way from a different continent. Your a really good writer, keep writing
