jackie

jackie was adorable
simple and sweet
the nicest girl
you’d ever meet

she grew up with ribbons
and curls in her hair
quiet but kind
always lending an ear

you could tell
she was sweet
but she was shy, too
she even had
a boyfriend or two

that was jackie
simple and sweet
nicest girl
you’d ever meet

i saw her just
the other day
in that happy
coincidence way
she seemed
more relaxed
than she’s ever been
holding hands
with her girlfriend

they have a house
foster rescued animals
just home for one
of those seasonal
family rituals

same old jackie
simple and sweet
nicest girl
you’ll ever meet

funny way

you have this
really funny way
of making me aware
of every syllable i say
whenever you are in the room
my senses awake
and i become
acutely aware
of every tiny move
my body might make

it seems like every time
you turn your eyes to me
i fear that you will somehow
be able to see me breathe
that you can feel
the warmth of my cheeks
and hear as my heart
quickens it’s beats
