I didn’t love, because things weren’t ready.
I didn’t love, because things weren’t there.
I had to have an agent and a manager.
I had to prepare.
Someone said love was simple,
Sitting with a poem on his bed,
Writing his own simple music.
I adored him for everything he said.
I didn’t love, because I couldn’t rest
Before the simplicity of love’s stare.
I had to have clouds, shadows and mountains
Before I could care.
I didn’t love, because there were others,
I didn’t love, because love isn’t fair.
I had to be the one. The only one.
So I didn’t dare.
I didn’t love because poetry is dying,
The arts and civilities are lying.
How can one trust lust?
My little life said, beware.
Because lives move,
I didn’t love.
