A Simple Man in Love

I thought a light simple poem, for a quiet day was in order.
If I marshal my lonely grief, will you not
surround me in your love - if this is not meant
to be, than bury me, bury me deeper than the
ground can see - as I no longer wish to be, nor

If I place my heart high upon a beacon, lift my
arms so you can see - will you look at me, will
you find me.

Shall I flap and beat my chest, so you can hear -
this is not done in jest! Perhaps, you only see
the fool, but I tell you now, I am different from
the rest.

I have not jewels or palaces; I know not kings or
queens. But what I can promise you…is us [and me].

For I am just a simple man, in love…with you!


  1. i love this piece - it speaks to me in so many ways, as if i, myself, have written these words - i know i have felt them and thought them - beautiful!

  2. What a beautiful advice, ignore her for awhile and watch her chase you........

    ॐ नमः शिवाय

  9. This is very nice, the fling into the wind of the the premise 'if', the cry 'shall I'...I really enjoyed this.
