every day that passes


she’s a little taller

a little wilder

she hears stop and just keeps walking

she hears go and takes off running

she does not

take your bullshit

she is not the host

of other people’s dreams


but she writes them like

they are destinations

she has decided

living is worth more than what could happen

she does not dance like

no one is watching

she dances like

you are watching

and she wants you to fall

just a little bit in love with her

every day that passes
