From your great admirers Nothing so common Reflecting upon the enquirer Knowing a grand entrance Stepping politely in this place Our mutual acquaintance Dropping your secret rimmed in lace Like this: Like Loading...

I may not be anything to write home about
You have standards, expectations & desire Those are mostly all good & dandy But it doesn’t account for imagination like wildfire
You once made a list, checking guys off
You’re a handsome lady, playing it as cool as ice I might be a possible misstep in your plans But I do know a guy like me doesn’t come around twice

I’m no hero
Just trying to make it through the night
Terrors & dreams haunting me
Still, daylight expects a man of might Like this: Like Loading...
Now that I’m old, there’s no chance to be cool
I’m that creepy lurker passing the delicates isle
Finding myself lost in nebulous thought
Youth dropping their eyes while I try to smile
You can’t be friendly when you’re a certain age
Somewhere along the line, I missed my cue
Oblivious to the graffiti on the decaying walls
I’m slowly dying, more with each day that’s through
Stuck before I can be the wisened old fellow
Conversations with alter egos as I deliberate
Taunting life with my aggressive apathy
Father Time impatiently waiting for my cryptic fate
A litmus test for fragile character upon my days
Emerging from adulthood with wisdom in my head
Never again a victim to society’s whims
Pushing past expectations; my own hero instead
Rising higher than their own trite requirements
Still not accepted & still the silly old fool
Sketchy, weird & perpetually the outcast
Damn, there went my last chance to finally be cool Like this: Like Loading...
You’re holding expectations
Needing me to be a better guy Wishing I was more successful Hating my truth; you’d prefer a lie So I wander within my own skin To become what you want in a man Each day, I’m ever more the pirate Soon, they’re be no more Peter Pan Like this: Like Loading...
