The Chronicles of Simon the Lover-
Chapter Eleven: Chronicle #4
Is now my true destiny revealed
A lover never to be loved?
I cannot be angry with you
I am angry with my crooked spine
Damn my crooked leg!
They have been love’s stumbling block
Muriel, our hearts are pure
But our circumstance is corrupt
And will not suffer
Love’s flower to blossom
My love, I will leave this small town
I refuse any longer to be suffocated
By its hypocritical judgment
I will go to the city
Where a peculiar man
May better blend in
As a large crowd
Provides a capable camouflage
For a lonely soul
I take no suitcase
A lover’s heart
Is the only baggage I carry
I am sorry that
I was not found pleasing
