Daily Prompt: Ostentatious

I never thought anyone –
especially the likes of you –
would catch my attention so quickly.
you walked by with such an air of
confidence. so much
arrogance.
and I’ve always found myself
turned off by these
mannerisms,
but not by you.
you walk like you own
the place – and that’s
not just a matter of speech.
you hold yourself above others,
yet I know you to be so
kindhearted.
your ostentaciousness
attracts me,
fools others,
hides your true self.
you don’t want to please or
impress others.
you want to feel good about
yourself.
that’s a feeling I know
way too well.
so walk like a god around me.
maybe I’ll make you feel a
little more human.
