The Poet Cries

I see pairs
I stop and stare
Gauge the odds and evens
The whole point of it, and reasons
And with logic establish rhetorics
With sound mind, engage
Try to look past the hands held
The lipstick stains left, the kisses
Hugs, the deposits plus big investments
Nerves, the fulfillment of better halves
My complicated status a shadow
Of the light that shines off
The simplicity of lovelihood
And why the poet canโ€™t write his way into a heart
Why the poet builds virtual situations, of dreams heโ€™s never had
Of doubts that he ever will
Why with all this skill
The poet still starves
He watches, but is too scared to love
If only he could ask, the poet could have
But the tasks at hand
The urge to understand
The secret behind beauty and brains
Truth for the poet to pen,
The reality, the sadness, the loneliness and the pain
But then, creativity flows from the same
The river so deep the poet could drown
Forever live on and never die
And for this reason
The Poet cries
