Can I say you are a figment of my imagination
Or simply just a foolish man’s fascination?
Would that my brain saw black or white,
Either you love me or you don’t, day or night.
But deep inside I feel you are worthy and true,
Looking in your eyes my heart sees no blue.
To have fallen off this tall precipice,
Despite my doubts gives me no solace.
Love for me undreamed of, never was gullible,
Never thought another would think me lovable.
Like the moth to the proverbial flame,
I flew towards you, my heart you did tame.
When together you always linger awhile,
Each union lasting hours, parting with a smile.
Your lovable ways surprises me everyday,
With how you listened and tender words you say.
Even the silly thoughts I had mumbled,
You never laughed when over can Idea I stumbled.
A few months together and we were inseparable,
All our moments joined in a feast so delectable.
You expressed joy and a wish for permanence,
Your desire for me threatens our independence.
But how does singleness provide a benefit?
In your arms I know love will always be our profit.
