The Simple Guy (poem)

I’m not a prince who sailed across a sea

In search of treasure promised by a kiss

Which lingers on the edge of some abyss

Where terrors yet unknown all wait for me

-

I’m not a star who thought he went too far

And now seeks out true meaning for his life

A kiss of clarity amid the strife

A possibility that will not scar

-

I’m not a spy in search of hidden schemes

Whose search will take him off to meet the world

Another kiss another clue unfurled

Pretended friends now try to end his dreams

-

I’m just this simple guy who now you view

Who’s hoping for a little time with you

Spending a little time with someone simple, could be much more meaningful than with a prince, a star or a spy. I love the concept as well as the poetic form.
