I Know a Girl (old unpublished poem)

I Know a Girl

I know a girl
Who frames us
In her mind
I know a girl
Who thinks love
Is a waste of time
I know a girl
Who brings musicians
To their knees
I know a girl
Who stays busy
To avoid things
I know a girl
Who should be singing
As a fulltime job
I know a girl
Who knows glory
Only through God
I know a girl
Who turns her cheek
When kissed
I know a girl
Who has a boy
That’s fatherless
I know a girl
Who can’t live
Far from the sea
I know a girl
Who is better off
Without me

I know a girl…
So many it seems
But the one I really need
Remains faceless
In my dreams
