I want to couple up with this girl because

she is breathing.
She invented scrambled eggs.
She is an Excel spreadsheet.
She has body language that hears.
She is built from the stuff
they built the Stockport Viaduct from.
She struggles and flourishes.
She tap dances across stars.
She is resilience wrapped in skin
wrapped in vulnerability
wrapped in Cadbury Marvellous Creations.
