girl in indigo

by Amelie Kenney

last night i dreamt of you again
-girl in indigo, 
girl ive never met-
i sang you ballads
and you held me close,
you never spoke
and i never provoked,
so the world kept spinning on without us, 
as we sat in sacred stillness, 
you have me roped.

-girl in the sky, 
girl who lives only in my head-
i want to meet you in real life,
outside of when i rest,
but you dont know my name
and i don’t know yours,
but i bet your name tastes like summer
and sounds like rain dripping from the skyline,
i bet it would roll off my tongue like salted waves
and feel like a breeze from the coastline,
i want to learn it all in real-time. 
-girl in indigo,
girl in the sky, 
girl i would trade my happiness for-
you have my heart dancing in these lines
and weve never even met,
i only walk with you in dreams,
but i already know we are destined to be in the end
so come find me,
im all alone,
eternally waiting for you,
the girl in indigo.
