simple

 

look at me and you will see
so simple so true and meek
feel me deeper like the sinking titanic
my surface underneath the earth is wide

you left me a room and i was alone
thinking how to start and how to love
strangers on the street tell me nothing
but words of temporary and wild

look at me over and over
this simple mind speaks the truth
feel me nearer like beside the universe
those stars are randomly beautiful
