She is a blend of the most complex intricacies;

a heart strong enough to let go of pain, soft enough to love.

words as soothing as jazz and moving the soul to dance like afrobeats.

an essence; light, free as the leaves of trees in the wind and deep, like roots of the oldest trees.

Skin; soft and supple and yet tougher than the hide of cattle.

Hands; small, slender, tender but ever so capable.

Smart in life, foolish in love.

She is her imperfections.
