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. My most recent completed endeavor was finishing BA's in Religious Studies and American Studies. 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.
