Prince Charming


I am not your prince charming, I cannot be!
But I love you, with all the passion that can be!
I am not the smartest man in God's earth,
But I have love aplenty, there is no dearth.

You don't have to be a petite model to impress me,
I have lazy habits, workouts are not my cup of tea.
If I do not have the perfect shape, to be a perfect beau,
Why should I expect a blonde, randy model in you?

Meet me, date me and see who or what I am,
A lover, a charmer, beauty's admirer and a fan.
I can hold you, mold you, unfold you wide,
Wrapped in pleasure, can go for a long drive.

    @Aqua Flower,
    Thanks for your beautiful comment on my poem. I fully agree with you that 'beauty is skin deep...and the chemistry and mental connection is what makes it so so real.' Thanks for sharing your thoughts. (Report) Reply

    Actually i was trying to re-emphasize your point on how people do put their focus on truvial things when falling in love instead of being satisfied by love alone just like the prince charming in your poem presents himself; with nothing but love. i hope that helps clarify my point abit.

    @ Dash Black
    I really failed to understand what you've meant by your comment on my poem, except the last two words. Would you please explain a bit?
    I suspect, the comment could have been meant for some other poem, erroneously dispatched. (Report) Reply

    Oh I love this cute poem on real love. Prince Charming can come in many
    guises. He can be just plain old handy Andy, nice Ned, slow Joe or cute
    Nute (smile) . Whatever they are as long as they have love, respect and character a
    prince charming they will always be. Thanks for sharing this talented write. (Report) Reply

    @ Cassandra Jasmine,
    Thanks for sharing your thoughts. One need not be a prince to be a 'Prince Charming' to the 'princess' he loves.
    Every woman is a princess at some point in time. She awaits and muses on her prince charming even if he be just an ordinary man. To her, he is the prince charming.
    Thanks for your inspiring adjectives. (Report) Reply

    This is more of a country with nothing but gold in the morning sun. A modern wright, well crafted to highlight suitor problems of today which are merely useless in the face of love. Great one (Report) Reply

    Beautifully written! As Payal Parande wrote, I don't believe that there's a prince charming either.
    I love how honest, sweet, and short this poem is. (Report) Reply

    @Anna Ottosdottir,

    @ Payal Paranda,
    Thanks for your comment. I am glad that you liked my poem.
    Yes, I agree with you that if a woman loves her man and be her princess, her man will automatically be her 'Prince Charming'. If both are sincere in their relationship and work on it, they will have a fairy tale life in this mundane world. (Report) Reply

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.
