Nobody's Poem

Written by: Jonathan Shipman

I look and before me is an angel I look and the heavens sigh, longing for this angel I look and know I am invisible This angel is who I love How must I capture her gaze Long enough to express my agony without her Must I conquer the world Must I touch the starts Must I forfeit my life Just so she knows me How must I capture her love Must I give up everything I own Must I become rich and powerful Must I change who I am Just for here love How must I capture and hold onto her Must I keep her in chains (so she never flies again) Must I clip her wings (so she never flies again) Must I cage her (so she never flies again) Just to keep her O don't pity me; my heart has loved, but pity those who don't love Dedicated to my love Dedicated to my angel
