I Met Her

By: Hanna Haitham

i met a girl with fire in her eyes
fire that rivaled that of the sun
the same sun that highlighted her eyes

i met a girl on a warm September day
when we had no plans
no future ahead of us
all we had was now

i met a girl who let me in
who let me take my time
who reminded me of all the good that’s left in the world

i met a girl with castles in her mind
dreams in her heart
and stars in her eyes

i met a girl with soft smiles
and bellowing laughs
with a wicked charm
and vicious determination

i met a girl like water
strong enough to push through rocks
tempting enough to lure you in and nearly drown you
and so beautiful you would do it all again

i met a girl like fire
powerful enough to burn you
enchanting enough to mesmerize you
and you can’t help but start it again

i met a girl on a warm September day
she loved me
she left me
she saved me
