'Only a Man'


It cannot be denied
That when you rejected my advances
It hurt my pride.

It was agony inside
And in my lonely, love-struck hours
I cried and cried.

Now everything depends
On whether I can work it out
And just be friends.

My foolish heart pretends
That true love never perishes,
Nor friendship ends.

I will be true:
In spite of everything I've said or done
I'm still in love with you!

And that's the way it goes,
But where the meaning of it can be found
Nobody knows!

Love's just a trick,
It fills you full of happiness,
Then makes you sick.

Have patience if you can
And regard me as a simpleton -
I'm just a man! !

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
