An Image of a Man

I’m in love with an image of a man, whom I have yet to greet

A vision, a feeling I will not understand; something I should not seek.

For I am in love with an image of a man, whom I have yet to meet

A moment, a dream I cannot demand; something I should not feed.

.

I’m in love with a man whose words I believe

A life, a joke, a foolish and painful cloak

For a woman, not me (how could it not be me?)

But by heavens, I know, the fates I would provoke.

.

I’m in love with an image of a poet in a man

A man I know I would kiss if he gave his hand

His hand that wrote all those words in a note

In a note that sang to my heart that’s barely afloat.
.

I’m in love with an image of a man, whom I have yet to meet

My love is strong, and it is stronger than a million longing I should defeat.

I’m in love with an image of a man, and that is all it will ever be

For my will is strong, and it is stronger than a thousand cries of the prisoner in me.
