A Geek In Love


I met a Geek just the other day

Complained of not having his way

A lady who turned down his love

Cannot see why place heart above

Beyond his reach beyond all pitch

Let me ask you this, is she a dish?


You go to a resto hands in pocket

Eyeing all, wondering what's to eat

Your stomach churns, wide eyes burn

Ah, this one looks lovely suitable

But did you know if she's amiable?

You go by looks, by appetite urges

Did you know love's terminal surges?


What is it about her that suits you?

What is it about her that makes you?

Will she turn night into blazing day?

Or turn inspiration into dark despair?

Love's complicated - vows you can't keep

Your brain dims from many hours not slept.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem is dedicated to Ali Sabry, my Iraqi friend, who was the first person to take me upon his handsome chest when I was lonely and just wanted company. Thank you Ali, you breached the gap, and made it up for that other Geek. Enjoy poetry - both reading and writing it - for it is the very juice of life, extracted from blood, sweat, and tears!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
