Super Man (Bizarro World) - Poem by Kewayne Wadley

Is it really enough,
The buildings that I soar so high.
Even there, I cannot find a release.
Every time there is a problem
I drop what I'm doing.
And come running
I'll stop a bullet for you.
If ever you should fall I'll come running
In blazing speed. To save you.
I've saved you a countless number of times
But I can't save you from you.
I've saved you.
Only to hear you constantly remind me
of the things I don't do.
Despite krypton.
I am only human.
Distress shouldn't be the only reason  you call.
I like to dress up as well.
Designer suits gone to waste
collecting dust sitting on the hanger.
I don't make six figures, but I'm sufficient enough to take care of
your needs.
The look in your eye when you hear the reality
 that I'm tired
verus the expectation of your thought.
Who do I call when the world seems too much.
Where do I vacation when everyone knows my name.
Defying gravity, only to remain chained down.
Beaten and broken.
All my cape knows is agony.
Bitter Cries from a wolf dressed in sheep's clothing.
I'm missing the life I knew before I brought this cape on sale.
The knowledge that branches off in your mind as otherwise
As most times I've realized that I didn't need to fly to be special.
Doing everything I can to keep you grounded.
The different ways your mind drifts to one thing or another.
The things that go unseen as I try to save you from you.
I am not the best. I am not the biggest nor do I hold the most masculine build
To lift more than I weigh. The buildings that come crashing down
quickly put under construction.
I am not the most handsome or what some would consider sexy.
At the end of the day.
I am me,
Trying to save you from the city of your own thoughts.
Despite Krypton
I am just a man.
Defying gravity, only to remain chained down.
Beaten and broken.
Even if I soared higher than the clouds.
I'd still come back to your beckoned cry
As Faith is stronger than both of us.
All I ask is that you take the time out to see.
That I've driven myself crazy to keep you sane.
Is it really enough
