Loving The Tin Man

Loving The Tin Man

A Poem by DannyLynne Riley

I'm in love with the tin man
I know it comes with such supprise
for everyone thought it was the scarecrow
but oh no
the Tin Man caught my eye

his steel embrace
I chased
through poppy fields and snow
I thought he was the living end
but how was I to know?

that beneath that armor so majestic
was but an empty shell
he hadn't the means to fall in love
how come I couldn't tell?

I must have been so blinded
by his shimmer and his shine
the only folds of love beheld
were those of my designs

But I am in love with the Tin man
as I have been right from the start
the only problem that lies there-in
He hasn't got a heart
