fool for love

(not a) fool for love                                June 18, 2016
tell me why
love is enough
to travel the world
to a man who tells me everyday
he has no thought for me?

you would write to me
at one am
and i knew then
you thought of me
when you woke.

did you know i loved you for that?

tell me why love
is enough to marry
a man who tells me everyday
he is ashamed what his friends
would think of me?

i may be in love with you
but i am not a fool
to give my name away
for a man who worries more
about the thoughts of strangers
than the heart of the woman
who loves him

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. I'm kinda-sorta busy being a student again; this time I signed myself up for a bizarre torture known as Graduate School. Theoretically in 4ish years I'll have earned some more nice letters to put with my name. Let's face it, I'm addicted to learning and probably need rehab to restore me to sanity and remove the obsession to read books. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
