A Tale of Three Men


Shushed and hushed

Ignored, shut up!

Told to simmer down

Made me cry, don’t ever ask why

That slutty color made him frown

No real dates, just hung out

Disappeared for days, no calls

On his own time he’d come ’round

Bailed on me, just let him be!!

Stared angrily at the ground

Holds my hand, keeps his word

Tells me how smart I am

Helps me heal, a tender heart

Within his arms I feel safe…

A beginning of a new start

I promise that I’ll be there

Just tell me that you’ll stay 

‘Cause I know that you’re for real 

I’m so in awe with all your ways

You said you loved our scars

I love how you trace mine 

With such gentle, loving fingers

My sunshine, you are sublime 

Each day I fall even more in love

With your passionate soul and heart

So please pardon if I stare too long

I’ve been mesmerized from the start
