Seagull Sunset eyes

Today I met a friend

Someone Strong and funny and out going

Someone small and frial.

Someone faint of heart


I met someone knowledgeable 

but that wasn't my friend

I met someone wise but that wasn't 

him either.


I even met someone angry 

Which was relateable, but no friendships 

were forged.


No the friend I met never separated her 


She was all she knew

She was all she wanted

She was impenetrable

 and I'm sure through her eyes 

she saw something no one wanted


But through


I saw someone I've come to know

Longer than a sunset.
