Of All The Faces, In All The Places - Poem by Andy Brookes

I cast about and I see you.
you from the cast of millions,
that myriad of stars.
did we see it in our stars?
we star crossed lovers.

your face sticks out of the crowd.
the crowd, the in crowd,
crowds me out,
that crowd of crowing crows.

I look with stars in my eyes
cast about to find one word.
your put your finger to my lips
you spoke with you eyes.

so I cast off, will you follow?
sanctuary I cannot offer,
no security, of that be sure.
just castaways, off to distant shores,
be secure in the knowledge
that nothing's scheduled.
my agenda's not hidden,
for I have non

that I will cherish and love you,
standing solid by your side
in solidarity, that is my only surety;
of that you can be sure.
if you'll let me, for my heart
is to let, to one careful owner.

will it be you?

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Sometimes you see the one and the world explodes. This about men loving men if you are uncomfortable with it the fault lies with you, if you disagree with it that's fine, what is not is abuse.
