Talking To Me.

I look her in the eyes.
These round things, artfully lined.
I ask her “who do you want to be?”
She bats her lashes at me.

I straighten her hair and blouse.
She lets me, quiet as a mouse.
I tell her “today will be okay”
And she lets me wipe the tears away.

And she looks back at me.
The mirror image looks back at me.
This little girl tells me nothing but with a silent stare tells me
tells me
I am
everywhere.

I’d shake her if I could.
Back hand her maybe, but I dont think I should.
Too many people strike out at her as it is.
So I’ll buy her a pretty purple flower
And give her a kiss.

She says so much without speaking.
I wish I were her, this quiet being.
She turns her head to one side.
As if to say “you dont know your own might?”

And she looks back at me.
The mirror image is looking back at me.
This little thing with not enough strength but her silent stare tells me
It tells me.
I am
everywhere.

There are times when I want to touch you.
Tell you things that you’ll believe.
There are times that I want to rush you, rush you, rush you…
Make you grow faster, change more.
So you can claim some sort of victory.

I look her in the eyes.

And she looks back at me.
My mirror image is looking back at me.
This little thing with such a great big voice but her silent stare tells me
Tells me.
Always telling me
I am everywhere.
And I am everything.
