Not Used To

September 13, 2018


There's a girl sitting alone on a bench. 
Her brown eyes fixed on a place,
only she can see. 
if you want, 
you can walk up to her and say hi.
She'll smile and say hi.
You can sit down,
she won't mind. 
If you start a conversation,
she'll only give short answers,
with a smile and a laugh.
You might have to do most of the talking at first.
She'll talk more eventually,
shes just not used to people listening.
She won't tell you this, 
because she's afraid you won't care but,
she loves the sky. 
She loves old books,
and ancient Gods, 
she loves black holes,
and silly poems,
anything with meaning. 
If you bring any of these up, 
her eyes will start to sparkle
and she'll speak faster. If she starts to hesitate ,
encourage her to tell you more.
Shes so smart,
but no one ever listnes very long.
When you have to leave,
she'll smile and wave.
And even though she won't sa it,
you've made her day. 
If you do come back to see her
don't be surprissed at the surpire on her face,
she's not used to people coming back.

    Oh my God, I find this to be so relatable! Anything I'm interested in makes me ramble and that tends to turn people off! Liking this!
