You Noticed, Poetry by Ivan Jenson

I just disappear
into the patterns
of the tablecloth
and wallpaper

Genre:Romantic, Love

You Noticed by Ivan Jenson

I just disappear
into the patterns
of the tablecloth
and wallpaper
and at other times
I am the floral
sometimes I
am the embarrassing
coffee stain
but sometimes
I am the
vintage wine
I am the
apple cider
of your eyes
and then
I am as far
away as
the man on the
quarter moon
taking a cold
meteor shower
a sight only
a geek
with a telescope
would be
interested in
and sometimes
you give me
one hundred
percent of your
and I am
a crowned
prince of
and ruler
of your smile
