Love is Stupid by Ian Zerafa

Love is Stupid by Ian Zerafa

Kids, I’m running away. I know that’s not the sort of thing a dad should ever say to his kids, much less write it. Especially at 11:34 on a Wednesday, when I know we’re going out to dinner on Friday. But I’m going. This letter’s […]

His eyes so blue

Lips so pink

Smile so pleasant

He makes me think


He speaks with confidence

A really kind soul

From many different girls

Their hearts he stole


He gives me flowers

Some daisies, some roses

He comes up behind me

And my eyes he closes


So gentle and sweet

He’s the perfect boy

One you should care for

Not use like a toy.

When he plays his sport

The way he cheers

When they win a victory

His eyes fill with tears


Oh how often we chat

All the jokes and laughter

It’s obvious to everyone

That it’s me he’s after


But there is just one thing

When my secret unfurls

What will he think

When I say I’m into girls?
