The Chronicles of Simon the Lover-

Chapter Eleven: Chronicle #4


Is now my true destiny revealed

A lover never to be loved?

Beloved Muriel

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

To you

My love
