I Know this Girl

I know this girl whose eyes are more mysterious and deeper than the ocean; her thoughts are drowning in them.


I know this girl who needs to be saved from herself. She believes in everything and nothing at the same time. She is hopeless and full of hope at the same time. I know this girl who is so delicate, yet remains strong for the sake of others. I know this girl who works harder than anyone but is still unappreciated.


I know this girl and she is full of surprises. I know this girl who is sanely insane. She puts Band-Aids on a gaping wound. She is like a pulchritudinous little butterfly, but only if butterflies ever saw their wings; only if she knew that a small flutter of her wings could cause a typhoon halfway across the world.


I know this girl who doesn’t accept love but is so full of it. I know this girl who listens to songs from the 2000s without caring about what others might think of her. I know this girl who writes poems on parchment sheets when emails are just a click away.


I know this girl whose hair smells like lavender. She is perfectly imperfect. I know this girl whose essence is fading away, just like the smell of lavender from her hair. I know this girl who finds peace in the brokenness of things. I know this girl who feels complete being incomplete.


I know this girl who says she doesn’t care about anything but secretly does. I know this girl who focuses on every small and unnecessary detail but doesn’t tell you that she expects the same from you. I know this girl who’s life is a mess but she won’t accept it. I know this girl who feels judged, even when she isn’t. I know this girl who either over shares or doesn’t share at all. She doesn’t know how to balance when it comes to the things she loves. She is a beautiful mess.


I know a girl who is always there for you but you take her for granted; the only thing you feel is her absence. I know this girl who is serious even when she is carefree. I know this girl who is internally screaming but still chooses to remain silent. I know this girl who is drained and exhausted but will stay up waiting for you to return. I know this girl who is breathing but isn’t alive.


I know this girl who is everyone in no one and no one in everyone. I know this girl who is like a playlist fit for any occasion. I know this girl who doesn’t stand out in the crowd. I know this girl who will help you find the way even though she’s lost. She is okay even when she isn’t.


I know this girl but she doesn’t know herself. She is oblivious of her past, her present and her total self. I know this girl who has been walked over numerous times but still manages to get back up. I know this girl who pretends to be someone else so that she can fit in.

She is like a beautiful puzzle waiting to be solved unaware that she is the missing piece; total and complete in herself.
