She was so elegant —
He couldn’t help but try
To talk to her

He couldn’t help but fall in love,
It seemed so right;

Were all a blur —

But she was more than just a look,
She’d known of hurt:
The monsters that she feared,
She’d seen herself —

And so she reached out to him,
Just to find that when
It wasn’t about him,
He couldn’t
