the shy one

written by: Steve Pearson



this is the story of a life
part one.
the birds flew south
marked by the clock
while the man below
governed by chance
jokers wild
met her glance
and upon a vaulting
beat of the heart
coyly turns
to spurn
the worldly ways of love
while up above
the birds flew south
so he berates himself
even a little
hates himself
and when
a second chance to say,
in a rain-refuge cliche,
fails him again
words of innocent love
from inner voice
remain a stranger
to his mouth
while up above
the birds flew south

That's me at the front of the photo. I'm an atheist, socialist, humanist, poet and soon to be novelist. From here to there and a lot of shit in the middle. That's life.
