someplace I am king

someplace I am king

A Poem by ace
"

repost of one of my old works

"

trying not to look
trying not to care
trying to act like your not even there
trying? if only that was all it took

it would take an act of god to ignore you
and I am simply a man
without even a leg to stand
so you draw my attention like so few

I don’t think u notice me
I am just a simple guy
no matter how hard i try
that is just how I will always be

I am still allowed to hope
and that is all I seem to do
hoping that I can be with you
even if I look like a dope

but which is worse
hoping for what cant be obtained
or giving up till nothing remained
I don’t suppose i am the first

to have hope for what can not be
in fact the story is as old as it gets
even before ink and paper ever met
but that hope makes me free

she is above me I am told
but you cant censor what i hope for
that is realities true back door
and I will use it and be bold

for in my hopes I am king
even if in reality I am low
meek mild and slow
in my hopes I can give her a ring

even if its only in my head
protect her from everything
give her many reasons to sing
its far better than letting my heart go dead
