Ordinary.

Ordinary.

A Poem by Nisha M.
"

You find pleasure in the simplest of things.

"

They say you're no different
They say you're simply ordinary
But if you are like them all,
Why do I think of you only?

They say you don't stand out
They say you're not much to see
But if you are like them all,
Why do you still enchant me?

Like the gentle drop of morning dew
You seem to resemble a fresh start
If the only thing you have is ordinary,
Then let it be known that your ordinary is my art 

Like the subdued glow of morning dawn
You greet my day unobtrusively
They thought I needed a chandelier
When all I needed was a candle beside me 

They say you're the same song, 
But I still hear a different tune
They say you're the same night, 
But I still see the moon

Because even with the grandest scenery
I was looking for the simplest view
And in a room full of treasure and gold,
I'd still end up looking at you.

I wish you knew
They don't see you the way I do
You're doing just fine
You, just be you.

This is a sweetly-written message with good rhyme & rhythm, plus a ton of ongoing examples to SHOW us how this narrator feels. You do a great job of stating each stanza almost like a little puzzle or a little drop of wisdom, each stanza with a little different point, but all flowing together in harmony. This is very good writing, but since I'm a little picky about rhythm, there are a few long lines that I would trim down a bit by choosing shorter words or maybe fewer words in some of your longer lines, just to even out the rhythm from line to line. This is not necessary, just what I would do and so I mention it, in case you want to think about it for future writing (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
