Between The Lines

If you read between the lines,
you will see that she is not the girl who
wears flowers in her hair,
and writes poetry on quiet nights
where she dreams
of being swept off her feet and
happily ever afters.

If you read between the lines,
you will see that she breathes fire
like a dragon, guarding a castle
of her tempestuous heart, for she loves
too deeply, without apologies.

If you read between the lines,
you will see that she is not a princess
nor does she need a prince to save her;
All she really wants is someone
brave enough to touch her fire.

  1. Sometimes, we leave things between the lines for others to find, because we want to expose that most inner part of our selves to the world, but we don’t know how to do so safely, without putting ourselves in danger of getting hurt.
