How Can I

How Can I

A Poem by Jofer Serapio

Another song for the Inner Pessimist in me.


How Can I

© Jofer Serapio


Weird is good

But only if you’re there

I don’t really care,

For anybody else.


All I ever see

Are your brilliant eyes

And your captivating smile

Let me breathe, for a while.


I just wanna know…



How long, can I go

Without you with me?

How strong, can I be?

Without your hand in mine?

How clear, can I think

Without your insanity?

How can I still be myself

Without you distracting me?


If I could,

I’d hold you and never let go.

I’d cry for you, smile for you, die for you.

Cause it’s true

I’ve fallen for everything,

Everything there is to you.


But I wanna know…


[Repeat Chorus]


There he stands

He’s waiting for you…

Here I stand

I’m thinking too much…


Yeah, I’m thinking too much.

I'm amazed that after six months of not using WritersCafe, I come back, click on a random work of fiction, and find this poem (or is it a song?). It has managed to perfectly - perfectly - articulate everything I am feeling at this moment. I cannot thank you more for posting this.
