SHE IS


Some days she's dark; some days she's light. No matter what, she's always true; she's always her - that you can trust. Her soul is dark with shimmers light, her heart black stained with crimson tears, her mind shattered but always sense. She holds madness in one hand and peace in the other, each as much a part of her as her smile, or tears, or eyes that look through your soul. She can hide with the best of them, assumptions and impressions all the world once knew of her, until she chose to share herself, and in her vulnerability let slip too much, the truth behind the mask now seen: The love behind the distance, empathy behind the cold, pain behind the indifference, an aching beyond the loneliness that she rarely sets free. There is a soul unlike any other, an oxymoron complete, for she is as she is not, a complexity few will - if ever - understand. Both woman and girl, enlightened though innocent and anything but, a soul forever young even as it has lived lifetimes; a Gemini is she, but so much more than can ever be explained by words. She just simply is and will always be. Me.

TERRIFYING STRANGE BEAUTIFUL


She's lived and loved, cried and died, a phoenix rising through lifetimes, echoing haunted eyes from memories past. She terrifies those have never understood or can never understand, turning from seeing or hearing the truth that is her. Those who have known her in lifetimes before are surprised to see the explosion of passion from whence she emerges, not used to seeing glimpses of soul as they whisper out from the depths of the dark she usually keeps locked away from prying eyes, safe from all save a chosen few, not selected by her but by her heart, unpredictable creature that it is, sometimes causing even she to wonder at its madness. Unlike the world surrounding her, she walks in truthful contradiction, strange and tumultuous chaos to an environment that seeks control and order. There is madness in her kaleidoscope whirlwind through your sphere, a uniquely furious beauty that captures attention, scaring you, even as you desire to touch or take hold of the free spirit always wished for, fear of the unknown with the realization that the only ones who can truly join her are rare kin souls who understand the illusion and warrior in their midst.

ALIEN


A mysterious chameleon, changing colours depending on her mood and emotion, she is the woman you can spend a lifetime trying to figure out, for she is an ongoing evolution of soul. She shimmers in and out of vision, vibrant with life as she smiles at you, before soulful eyes turn dark, tiny glimmers in inky depths the only hint that there is anything of the light which first captured your attention. New and unique facets of her personality seen at every twist and turn, like the ever changing scope of shadows as the sun rises and sets and the moon comes out to cast its glow on the world, revealing indescribable beauty that can linger in the midnight, wonders that seen in any other light might hold another curious perspective, tempting and teasing, luring you to desire the experience, another layer of depth to the elusive creature you seek. There is something that draws you in, wanting more, to be able to be close, one of those rare few who are allowed to see the soul beneath the impression that creates more illusion than certainty, unsure what might be fantasy and what is reality. She is the woman you can look at and see differently each time, a quietly reposed soul or uninhibited free spirit, almost childlike in innocence or charmingly seductive in a manner unconscious as she simply lives her truth in the moment. All who look will notice something different, bring out something different, call her “different”, because they do not understand what drives such a creature, changing from azure to turquoise to crimson to pearl and light to dark in mere seconds. There are many flaws in the raw jewel before your gaze, but it is the imperfections that make her “perfect” to another alien soul.
