The Simple Guy (poem)

Updated on April 30, 2016

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.
