A Message For Nicola
(I) Something is telling me not to love you. The trees blow against every
Thought that I speak of.
The moon shines bright but only
When I do not speak of your name.
Loving you is driving me insane.
Sleepless nights and thoughtless days.
Living my daily life is just a haze.
Everything seems to not want me
To love you;
Like when I jump on a stage and
The crowd always shouts, 'boo! '
50 years bad luck.
Warning sounds 'do not love her,
No matter how hard others try to stop me,
My love for you is too strong to
Bury in the sea.
If I didn't love you then Shakespeare
Didn't write, nor did Robert Browning
Wrap Porphyria's hair tight.
Dramatic Monologues would just be
Fables and Hitler's men didn't 'heil.'
See loving you means something strong,
Like bitter words spoken through time,
Twisted tales of death and people
Who did wrong, then my love for
You seems sweet and strong.
Care not I for sweets nor flowers,
Nor the people's evil eyes and powers.
Your love for me is all I need,
Take my hand and we'll proceed...
Down the road to happiness and
Smiles once again,
Where we can be ourselves
With the happy choir men.
I've loved you since the day
We met - and I must say -
That I regret...
Not telling you then - but please
Listen now -
'Nicola, I Love You! '
