not enough

Click here to hear the poet read his words:

not enough

the heart is a fragile organ
which shatters at the slightest wrong touch
this happens when you love someone
too much but not enough

love sets you free and cripples you
love is like the stars above
diamonds dancing in her eyes
too much but not enough

she thinks I am a butterfly
she thinks that she is tough
she leaves me in a crumpled heap
I love her too much but not enough

love is a walk in the park and rainbows
buttercups and a dragon named Puff
when darkness comes they disappear
far too much yet not enough

I never quite recover
my roads are long and often rough
I never think it possible
she loves me too much but not enough

love is holding hands and smiling
sharing jokes and all sorts of stuff
like memories of together for so many years
far too much and yet not quite enough

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless. https://anelephantcant.me/
