Lonesome Prince

Your eyes used to shine bright

But where is the shine now?

And you used to smile with such delight

But it left you somehow.

I wonder why you lost your spark,

I hope you find it again.

I pray you get out of the dark

Come back, let’s begin.

Don’t They Know

They say I’m lonely because I am alone

They say I haven’t tried falling in love just because I have no significant other

They say I haven’t truly had my heart broken because I’m single.

.

But don’t they know I’m at my happiest when I am alone?

Don’t they know that I’ve fallen one too many times for the wrong person?

And don’t they know that single people has had their hearts broken more often?

The Idea

And on he went by telling me that he has fallen for me

I ask him why, what made him look my way

He says the mystery of me is a curious thing for him

So I say,

“You are not in love with me.

You are in love with the idea of me.

Of the what could be, what will be, what you and I could do,

Or would do. Of the idea that I could be it, the one, the lifetime.

You are in love with the future that has yet to unfold, which most girls might like

However,

That is not what I see.

I see the now, the boy who has no idea of what he truly wants.

The boy aimlessly moving along and bringing along whatever he is attracted to.

I see a boy lost in the fairytales hoping the princess would come and save him from loneliness.

That is not what I want.

I want a man who can stand on his own

Who agrees to disagree with me

Whose idea is like and unlike my own and respects it

A man who battles with me, for me, and will stand by me

A man who has sense and intelligence and emotion.

You may not see the difference”, I said to him.

“Because you are a boy who still has yet to grasp the idea of what it is to be a man.”
