The Girl inside
I was searching for something but couldn’t reach,
Found a pretty girl, but couldn’t cross the breach;
What else could I do except look at the ceiling and whine,
Had a hundred thoughts and she was ninety-nine;
Her eyes so bright, makes you look the other way;
Her gaze so deep instantly takes your breath away;
Sitting next to her, my pulse feels like a sledgehammer,
Listening to her voice, I could do nothing but stammer.
Her smile; it wasn’t like the one they showed in the movie,
But when her lips curled, God it was groovy.
She was a tomboy with a figure,
Looking like a nerd with glasses that couldn’t get any bigger.
Outfit not on point, nails not on fleek,
She doesn’t give any effs, she was a total geek.
She was strong, she was resilient and Teira was her name,
‘Strong willed’ it meant, they didn’t misname.
She was a hustler and a player, with pretty big dreams;
She worked so hard, they were her mainstreams.
Sweet and kind, the kinda girl you call perfect;
Being witty and smart, always had a special effect.
Sipping half a cosmo, she would dance so offbeat,
In my life of troubles, she was the cheat sheet;
Living within me, she drives me to happiness somehow;
I so want to be her, just don’t know-how.
I know you are in there somewhere. I love you and I won’t stop looking for you until the day I see the mirror and see you there.
P.S: Teira is my imagination. I feel like she’s this tiny person that lives inside me. She’s my alter ego.
