Anything but simple

You thought that you were plain.

Ordinary.

Boring.

The world tried to simplify

The complexities of your equation,

And in their ignorance

They forgot to carry the 3

and didn’t know how

To multiply the 4.

The world wasn’t versed in your

Arithmetic,

As it is so much

Easier  

To see beauty in the 

Obvious 

Than to search for the Freckle

Above your lip.

It’s faster to add 2+2

Than to square

To the greatest common factor.

And so the world tried to make you

Simple.


But to me,

You are far more extraordinary

Than the Pillars of Creation

In a far off Galaxy.

You are a nebula

Getting ready to explode,

A speeding asteroid

Chasing the stars 

That I’ve fallen in love with,

And I am prepared

For the amount of Math

It will take to get there.

You are a single Hydrogen Atom

That created my universe

With a

        Great

                Big

                    Bang.

Flooding the whole

Of

                                    Time

                   and

Space

With bright pink clouds

And Streaks of Stardust.

And when they say

Your eyes are blue,

I call bullshit.

Your eyes are the snowflakes

That melt on my nose.

Your eyes are my

                   Moon

                           and my

                                     Stars

And my Galaxy.

You are not as Simple

As they say you are.
