dream girl [excerpts from a book i’ll never write – twenty-two].

combing through my old drafts, searching for inspiration.  stumbled upon this one, not sure why it never got posted…

you fool yourself into thinking you know who she is, but nothing could be farther from the truth.  she is a kindness you have never witnessed before, bundled up in sass that could cut through the toughest steel.  she’s never aimed for sexy, that’s not her thing, but she’s got a little bit of hard-ass you’d never suspect coming.  she places her loyalty at your feet, and it’ll hold under the weight of broken promises and shattered dreams.  she’s a country song you have to dance to, the wind blowing through her hair as she speeds down backroads, a pile of books on the nightstand.  she’s the kind of person who would learn to make your favorite soup, even though she’d never eat it.  she’ll always remember your birthday, and never forget your first kiss.  she’s like a hummingbird, in constant motion, so when she slows down you know she needs the rest.  she’s a dream you’ll never wake from, nor will you ever want to.
