We often sat across from each other
engrossed and peaceful
She was the most intelligent woman
I have ever known
She was beautiful, in an awkward way
a bit too thin 
a little uncomfortable
in her own skin
straight, dirty blonde hair brushed her shoulders
a hair tie dangled around her wrist
dangled because of her thinness
Her large eyes were the color of smoke
grey and thick
She was cognitively confident
but physically terrified
though she never allowed anyone to see that
it was impossible to deny
her vulnerability
She was brilliant and talkative
She said the most amazing things
thoughts about Nietzsche, analyses based on Jung
contemplations inspired by Whitman
all embellished by her own ideas
I swallowed every word she said
I've never been so intellectually satiated
We often sat across from each other
engrossed and peaceful
her face in a book
mine in a notebook
looking up now and then
to express our thoughts
corresponding perfectly
with one another
