Search for the best and brightest
this rock can offer you car lots
of fishes with lemons mixed in.
And the tempest is merciless to the faithless.
Peruse each face
beyond the cover to the meaning
of the story each mouth tells.
Only the best looking, best sounding
personality should satisfy.
Believe there’s more
than nice eyes and good teeth.
In a face that can paint words
no language can entrap
hides a soul with lips
that can speak them fluently.
Be patient and resolve yourself
to find the perfect flame
is to have light in dark nights.
But night’s dark
brings a shadow allowing nothing to shine
and hearts sleep alone under covers.
Thoughtfulness keeps you from sleeping.
And a personality can’t warm you
with soft arms it doesn’t have.
Be content with what you are spared.
Fools chase after grand illusions
when all you should want
is one who’ll want you back.
