You love a simple soul
Stripped to the waist
Heart hardly beating
But you listen anyway.
Say that you can hear

Exactly what I can't.
I want to hear it too
But you say that it's
Magic and magic
Is meant to be secret.

You love a simple soul
Simple words spilling
From simple lips.
But you say you trust
Simple words, truths

Like pier jumpers.
Skin like plain clothed
Police, stretching smiles
That can't be concealed
Under brimmed caps.

You love a simple soul
That loves you back.
That builds walls from
Words, with co-ordinates
For the secret door.

No cryptic clues though
Just barefaced truths
Scatter shot in photos
Mouthing I love you's
As sepia builds strength.
