She's For Real

(She said that she thinks church
should be like a concert show)

She stood beside the door awake
She looked and saw him sleeping there
They never found out how they met
Strange that they should both forget

She senses anger, smells his sweat
And wonders what she's doing there
He told her that he's never wrong
And let her know it won't be long

She can't be swayed
And she won't become set in her ways
She knows just what she feels
And she knows that she's for real

And when he asks her one more time
'Hey, listen are you hearing me? '
She tells him, 'No' and walks away
She just can't stand his face today

She said that life's a miracle
And prayer is us just being here
She used to be the flower girl
The nameless one, she used to twirl

She can't be swayed
And she won't become set in her ways
She knows just what she feels
And she knows that she's for real

And then she asks him one last time
'Do you remember....
Do you remember how I feel? '
He answers, 'No...' and lets it hang
She knows for sure just how she feels
Oh how she knows now she's for real

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
