Difficult is not impossible - Relient K, "Hope for Every Fallen Man"

If all I had was love, would I still be lovely?
If all I gave was love, would you give up on me?
-House of Heroes, "Love is for the Middle Class"

The warmth of the moonlight
dancing upon the cool, dark night.
Beauty seeping from every corner of the Earth.
We look out upon a sea of glass-
a mirror reflecting the vast, starry skies.
I don't even know you,
but the experience leaves me shaking.
Such a strange feeling,
I wonder if it was only a dream
or maybe some elaborate scheme.
God must be up to something, so many times I've told him
my heart is aching for something real
among the lies they call reality.
I regret not saying more-
maybe a "Nice to meet you"
but I was left speechless.
What happened?
How is it,
that I felt like telling you all?
Will I ever see you again?
All I can think now is,
what a shame,what a shame
I left with nothing but a name.

The author's comments:
This is a very old piece. I, being a hopeless romantic, wrote this after I bumped into this guy out by my pond one night. All I could do is ask what his name was, and then say how beautiful the night was (in a mumble!). It was such a magical moment- I was so shy then. It makes me laugh to think of it now. I wonder if he even remembers, I bet it meant nothing to him, haha!

A poet's work is to name the unnameable, to point at frauds, to take sides, start arguments, shape the world, and stop it going to sleep.
