ashley – part 1

I looked at her then realized I loved her
Who?
Ashley, he said and he may as well have said
Nobody – for all the ashleys wandering around
This planet that we call home
Ashley, some girl from the ash tree meadow
(is she really?) and if she is,
why were they so proud of that fact
that they made her name
a memorial? To a moment
of satisfaction…
or agony…
and how did she get here (or there)
and if I was born in an ash tree meadow
(or conceived)
would you look at me and love me too?

(So I was talking to someone on IM whose name showed up as “I looked at her then realized I loved her.” The next two words were direct conversation… the remaining lines were later ponderings.)
