Neville

Somewhere on a Spectrum

Somewhere on a Spectrum

 

Long before their

eyes

first failed to meet

he just knew she

would be different

somehow ..

After all, she was

so very hard to

describe ..

Like the textures

of fire and water

are so very hard to

describe ..

She was lithe like

a fish

and carefree as

a fool ..

Yet so socially

awkward

and quite unaware ..

Like a lost

flightless bird

desperate

to dance upon air ..

Yes long

before their eyes

first failed to meet ..

He just knew

she would be special

But then,

hard to understand

somehow ..

Like the contrasting

extremes of both

magma

and permafrost

are hard to fathom ..

She was

after all an enigma,

a mystery

a dream in the

making ..

But also alas,

in need of protecting

from herself and

those

with no conscience

or morals

nor bloody integrity ..

Pinned

as she was like that

on a glorious

rainbow coloured

and yes ..

Perfect broad spectrum ..
