I saw you again today
but only from a distance.
My heart yearned for you
to turn and really see me--
not the girl I was
or the one I now show to the world.
I wanted you to see my true self,
to recognize her
because you always knew she was there inside me
longing for someone
to breathe life into her.
Truth be told,
my body belongs to my true self
and to the man who recognizes her.
The song that floats from my heart
calls to him...
But it seems we are destined to meet
only in brief brushes.
So what will become
of that girl?
