Ridiculed Romantic (Poetry)

faceless woman looking out window at home

Jonah had his whale
And Eden had its fairy tale
My life’s been rather pale
Without my darlin’ Gale

You outgrew me, don’t you see
I was full of eccentricity
And you left no place for me
Eros is cruel, I chased helplessly

Almost too obsessively
Looking to replace you
Left with only animosity
As a ridiculed romantic fool

Jonah had his whale
And Eden had its fairy tale
My life’s been rather pale
Without my darlin’ Gale

I used to swear
By the light in your eyes
That I’d always be there
Under cloudless blue skies

Back then I was in heaven
Now I thought you’d sympathize
Looking forward to a happy reunion
But now I’m just ostracized

Jonah had his whale
And Eden had its fairy tale

Never can let go of you
Once my source of ecstasy
I’m left a bumbling fool
Without a sense of urgency

Now swallowed by fantasies pedantic
Hopeless cares swallow me whole
Now I’m just a ridiculed romantic
Who’s become a wandering soul

Jonah had his whale
And Eden had its fairy tale
My life’s been rather pale
Without my darlin’  Gale
