I look at my reflection
of you holding me from behind
and think how in the world
was I this lucky.
you kiss my neck and my whole body smiles
because at this moment
I am in disbelief
that the woman staring back at me
is actually me.
As a child I was
a girl who longed for love
and was never lucky enough
that worked at being noticed
and always missed the mark
that thought no man would love her
until the day that it happened.
You smile as our eyes connect
and I see some spark
some firework erupting between us
and at that moment
when the spark starts to sizzle away
I realize the girl staring back at me
After a long night, and a quiet drive home, I’m finally convinced that I no longer am who I was.
