everything: my life,
the world, the men,
everything that is not her
is nothing.

does she know how hard I work
to be beautiful to her?

I would fly to china,
I would build a pyramid,
I would plow the dark earth
with my bare hands.

please, god, don’t let her know:
the day she learns I love her
she will look for another.
