A girl who wanted to
see the world
and a lost boy.
With broken pieces fitting into place,
and a first class ticket at hand.
With him, she saw the crashing, crystalline blue oceans.
The white slopes of the Himilayas,
and the asymmetry of his grin,
like the leaning tower of Pisa.
He felt like lava,
and tasted like broken sunshine.
Then he learned to fly
away from her.
The waves rolled over her hilltops,
until the ocean dried up.
The mountains were eroded to nothing,
and the tower fell over.
The lava cooled,
and the clouds moved in.
There was nothing perfect.
Not for a girl like her.
Maybe the world wasn't ready for that kind of love.
Or maybe the girl wasn't ready for the world.
