The girl in the photograph

Felicity Jones by Mark Abrahams

 

The girl in the photograph

The girl in the photograph
is swagger and poise
shyness and hope
uncertainty and strength

The girl in the photograph
is desire and fear
softness and style
fantasy and real

The girl in the photograph
is hunger and joy
knowledge and warmth
rebellion and love

The girl in the photograph
is danger and sex
promise and dreams
intelligence and wild

The girl in the photograph
is not mine
but I wish
she was

The photograph here is the stunning English actress Felicity Jones (a long-term crush), and was taken by Mark Abrahams for © GQ Magazine in 2014. Since I posted this a while back she has found much deserved fame in the Star Wars franchise. The poem is not about her.

This is not one of my new ones – I think I first posted it three years ago, but I hope you enjoy. Sometimes I see a girl in a photograph…..
