The Best Policy

I know she was hoping I’d come to see
that absence makes the heart grow fonder.

I’ve been on the road for a while now, and
some roads, like stories. have no end.

I guess she thought she knew who I was,
but she was in love, and love is blind.

She must have been blind as a bat:
You can’t lose what you never had.

  1. ahh the unrequited lover – one feels pity for a good man is hard to find!
    This refrain belongs in a song – keep composing!
    “I’ve been on the road for a while now, and
    some roads, like stories. have no end.”
