right next door

superman and lois lane
shared a love that was so plain
yet a secret it so long remained
such was love between the unnamed
such a love between 
superman and lois lane

superman and lois lane
had a secret that each wouldn't claim
yet with hope they started each day
save the world or tell the way
the absence of true love would pay
superman and lois lane

superman and lois lane
would never admit to this pain
like a poet without a pen
a would be love without any gain
all the years in loves game
superman and lois lane

superman and lois lane
finally had their day
although it was delayed
nor greater love was made
you maybe a superman 
with your own lois lane

but to love in all it's greatness
your still a clark kent

    Hi, John i love the love that was shared, and you are right something feels so wrong when a poet is without a pen. I think Clark, is a lucky man... i need no superman... always~pd
