Just Like This

third in the series of “tell me your song and i’ll write you a poem”

Just Like This

I love Greece
with its glorious beaches
and mountain ranges
I love Greece
with its history
and its mythology,
as a child I learned
that Apollo is the God of
music, poetry and art
but I adore Zeus
with his power to rule
all the Gods and men
his mighty prowess made him
the king of Olympus

But I see no God in you.

I love fairy tales and
happy ending,
with Cinderella
topping my list
and how she
found her lovely
prince charming in the end

But I see no prince charming in you.

Nah, I never really wish you
to be any of those powerful
Greek Gods, nor be like
Cinderella’s perfect
prince charming

I see no Greek God in you
I see no prince charming in you

But baby, I want you,
“just something I can turn to
somebody I can kiss”
that perfect “spider man and Mary Jane”
kind of kiss, or that “happy ending”
“boy meets girl” movie moment kiss

“I want something just like this”

  1. I love the message in this piece.

    “I see no Greek God in you
    I see no prince charming in you

    But baby, I want you,”
