Homework Answer on The Poems No More Tears and Listen to me Love
Listen to me, Love
When I should look at you I don’t want it to be more than a glance.
When I think of you I go to sleep at once
You are not beautiful; you are beauty itself
But when I try to talk to you I find out I am talking to myself
Why do you exist when it’s certain you’ll never give me a chance?
Why should I waste my pieces of paper?
Why should I describe lips that taste like red pepper?
A love song about you would be a song meant to be sung in haste
A song about a heart outpour gone to waste
Sand as if the singer was afraid of a sniper
Tell you what, time is running out.
Very soon there will be nothing to talk to you about
When years will have passed and your beauty faded and nothing left to make me suffer.
My feelings will have died; I won’t come back with a better offer
There will be no second chance, I dare you to doubt.
