I feel simple of mind
I could whisper a beautiful word
But it would mean no more or less
Better to be raw
And forthcoming in my expression
Brilliance is not my forte
My emotions are hot and cold
Besides, language leaves much to be desired
Look into my eyes
Do you see the presence lacking?
Feel my chest
Does my heart not beat with vigor?
Though my emotions are flatlining
Love will not be squeezed from me
When shadows cover the light
She pokes me in the back
And tells me the direction I should take
So does life keep me down?
Surely it gives me pain
But life is what life is
And love is kind to me
