Riley

A fireball
burning from within.
Destined to destroy
and you know it.
But don’t stand too close.
You’ll get lost in
her fiery eyes.

She’s an enchantress
but she doesn’t know it.
So captivating
you’re lost in the sea
of her
vocabulary.
The words on her tongue
are spell-binding.
Heart twisting,
mind spinning,
soul filling limericks
that have never done more
than reflect her emotions
elegantly.

But every-so-often,
her mouth runs dry.
She breaks.
And you don’t want to be far
when she does.

She’s devastatingly gorgeous.
Heartbreak in a person.
But she’s gentle
and she’s perfect.
A beautiful
broken
masterpiece
who has always been more
than a sum of her parts.

She’s a force to be reckoned with.
Dangerously powerful
yet careful.
She is strong
but unaware
because all she knows is
her imperfections.

She is broken
but that’s okay.
Because like her,
so many strong women
began as broken little girls.
