Your Typical Gushy Love PoemThe man who claims to know his mind is a liar.
The thing is a swirling cloud of misapprehensions,
Baseless beliefs, and self-aggrandizing folderol.
I ponder these thoughts as Haley approaches.
Am I in love? I'm thrilled that she's come. I'm eager
To hear what she says to me, but is the woman
Within who I want, or do I want the one within
Because she's inside such a beautiful shell, and my
“Love” is no more than a stratagem to keep it
At my side?
