Disparity in Beauty

I watch despair
Brushing her hair
And I'm intrigued
I wonder if she'll notice me
Weaving long flowings locks
Inside her cage
And I'm amazed
I wonder if she feels the same
She turns her head to stare
Her gaze seeks right on through
Invisible to what she knew
I wonder if it's true
And at last
I'm noticed with a gasp
As we embrace
We don't even know our names
She'll never let me go
Her head held to my chest
The mess that i believe
So hard to breathe
Clutching her back
Swaying in dance
The art of the panic attack
Feels right on track
I watch despair
Knowing she's always there
Of my stare
Without her care
