in school, did you ever have That Girl, the one that you never really spoke to or knew much about, but really fascinated you because of some exotic quirk she had? for me, her name was Cheri and she was a goth, but she was like the classiest goth i had ever seen. No tattoos (visible, i mean) only one set of piercings in her ears, but her clothes and her style was all goth. Her skin and face were pale and her eyes were darkened, hair was ebony under onyx and it was hard to describe her wardrobe. She was in at least one of my classes for the 3 years at our high school and when i could, i listened to her speak. she wasn't a normal goth. She was articulate, well read and just amazing. my senior year, i finally spoke to her and i am glad i did. She handed me a poem i had written the year before- she wrote it down as i read it to the class and kept it. she kinda liked me. she signed my yearbook right before graduation and it is still my favorite. "Your darkness shines brighter than others' joy- revel in that." so, any of you ever noticed "that girl", the odd or unique one at school and just wondered about her? and did you ever speak to her? like i said, i am glad i did- otherwise, it woulda nagged me for years.
