Stupid girls in love (An average poem)

There is this moment
Of the horrific epiphany
That my poems will never
Do you justice.

I am from the clumsy experiments
Of traffic and skyscrapers.

You are all that is glorious
From long perfected scriptures.

There is this moment
Of the horrific epiphany
That my eyes will never
Meet yours

I am from the lowly grasslands
Of drought and devotion.

You are the richest elixir
From the lushest rain-forest.

There is this moment
Of the horrific epiphany
That my love will never
Surpass her shadow.

I am from those anonymous notes
The ones she tore and laughed about

You are the wobble in my knees
But she is perched on yours.

I am only a stupid girl in love.
