I know a girl whose hair is silk untoiled I know her hair smooth like milk unspoiled I know milk with the taste of honey swirled I know a girl whose eyes are the sun shine I know her eyes like the girl sweet and fine I know sweet and fine like the girl in time I know a girl whose smile is a rose unfurled I know a rose whose smile is a girl uncurled I know a smile that is like a girl unfoiled I know a girl whose heart is torn by thorns I know a thorn whose torn by scorn I know scorn like the girl that has sworn I know a girl whose soul is unearthed I know an earth like her soul ungirthed I know a soul like the girl unbirthed I know a girl whose flower is bloomed I know a flower that lifts my spirit from gloom I know a spirit like a girl with a plume I know a girl whose mood is color blue I know the color blue but she hasn’t a clue I know a clue that the girl is not true I know a girl but she doesn’t know me I know she doesn’t know me she can’t see I know I can’t see why she doesn’t see me I know she never was, has been, nor will be I know what has been that I’ll never be I know I’ll never see the girl close to me I know a girl whose hair is silk untoiled I know a girl whose eyes are the sun shine I know a girl whose smile is a rose unfurled I know a girl whose heart is torn by thorns I know a girl whose soul is unearthed I know a girl whose flower is bloomed I know a girl but she doesn’t know me I know she never was, has been, nor ever will be

i have had a couple of close friends short term, but otherwise i have spent my whole life alone. My parents distanced themselves from me but not my siblings. Loneliness happens when we are not acceptable for who we are. Not being accepted is a thick heavy shroud that is impossible to lift without being accepted. i have come close to giving up a few times but somehow i fight on for the hope that someday i will meet others, like me, and they will accept me like i accept them. littlegreenthing.com has been many things, but now it is another attempt to connect with others that feel the same weight that i do.
