In Love with a Nerd

1. Too fired up
he exaggerates every niggle
and squashes every chance to assuage our boils.
He acts without a lode star
putting everything under weigh
and exhibiting ignorance with flames of literacy.
Reading without play decorates stupidity
I play the cheap one, I expect a ponce reaction
but even before a step is taken
a dumb picture is as expected on coming.

Chorus
Good is not synonymous to boring
life is not confined to the brain
then restricting the eyes to texts and scrolls.
Oh boy! Let your fingers play
and give me the satisfaction of having a man.

2. Yearning for my bosom to lean is cute
even with his turtle-rate deviation
nothing big enough to create a splits-ville for us.
Feel free to taste the limits
lets bite both sides of the apple
to feel alive.
The sharp contrast of our mental world
is unbeaten
as the shark swims with the penguin
far from the river bank deep into the sea.
I’ll not let him down
because I’m at the rein of our sweet affairs.

Chorus
Good is not synonymous to boring
life is not confined to the brain
then restricting the eyes to texts and scrolls
Oh boy! Let your fingers play
and give me the satisfaction of having a man.

3. This is love so nurtured and edifying
but locked air-tight and hidden.
Boredom imitates his sense of activity
and intimidates his maturity
restricting his self expression.
He’s intelligent but his sense of adventure
ss free-floating.
A tender feather so scared
to fall in the mud.
Passions burnt in unbelievable temperance
by one who takes permission to even say sorry.

Chorus
Good is not synonymous to boring
life is not confined to the brain
then restricting the eyes to texts and scrolls
Oh boy! Let your fingers play
and give me the satisfaction of having a man.

4. His gradual improvement
does not change the limits of this rut
be contemporary, be sophisticated
allow your instincts do the training 
my sweetheart.
Intimacy is all scarlet
but ours is a mixture of grey and sepia.
For how long can I accept this quarantine
to come out happier?
For how long will this low brow
acquire a broad vision?
I’ve gathered the mulch for the romance to feed and grow.

Chorus
Good is not synonymous to boring
life is not confined to the brain
then restricting the eyes to texts and scrolls
Oh boy! Let your fingers play
and give me the satisfaction of having a man.

His apt evolution, my big time career
his newly adopted spark
my personal project
all, just to better our romance.
Then one day,
he made me slip over the bridge
from dress sense to queen-killing gestures.
Then the naughty jokes
and bad boy touches
well committed beyond rehearsal.
His devil’s compliments
with eyes of no good intentions
give me reasons to shout hallelujah
to a four year wait.

Chorus X2
Good is not synonymous to boring
life is not confined to the brain
then restricting the eyes to texts and scrolls
Oh boy! Let your fingers play
and give me the satisfaction of having a man.

    Hi Funom I have been reading some of your work. Very powerful and emotive if you think my work is Intellectual then I suggest you re-read your work. Unfortunately high brow writing I find is not to everyone's taste but stands alone

    You don't sound like you are in love.

    This is about you playing a guitar where you are letting the fingers do the walking. Right? Jim Horn

    Top-notch creative song, Funom! Very open and honest emotions expressed w/a powerful flair of language of octave degrees. A thinking person's type of song. Oh, nerdy me. Brilliant poetry. Love and more love to you and yours.

    THE RICHNESS AND THE FLAVOR OF THIS POEM IS NOT LOST BY YOUR DELICIOUS INTENT. IT'S RATHER INVITING TO THE SENSES. NICE SHARING FUNOM X

    This is an intricately beautiful lyric. My personal favourite is (3). It has a soft, sad and longing tenderness in it that is being built from there. Very complex, very beautiful. And wonderful to try to comprehend fully.

    This as kept me into the lyrics from the top to the bottom of this writing. It is deep, personal in its attempt and very much stellar writing, by a great writer. I liked this. Funom, You must put this to Music. Fair-Play. Daniella
