Best Served With: Ordinary People by John Legend (Instrumental Version)
I don’t understand.
Why when gloomy suns boil their flying oceans,
When azure and scarlet unite in carnage,
When hollow Spartans fight and fuck,
Why do you choose today of all days?
Why after I tell you I love you?
And bare my baby of a soul to callous caramel?
Why let weighty winds whisper worries while you wave woefully?
Summer breeze mournfully kisses my sullen cheeks;
Brown buns cut by salty streams limping downwards,
Racing until they reach the bloody gap where my heart used to be.
I always knew you didn’t love me,
But a man can dream, can’t he?
Hey guys, the title of the poem refers to Jaufre Rudel, a french poet who was one of the pioneers of love as we know it today. He would write poems only about love but never actually have sexual relations with his lovers. Sometimes, he would even write poems about women he had never seen before but still claimed to love them. Love today is not as unadulterated and simple, we often do whatever we can to protect our hearts and people rarely ever take that dive without testing the waters. This poem is about baring your heart out and that soul-crushing moment when it gets broken. For me, in that moment, time stops and all my thoughts and emotions come rushing in at once. The only question on my mind is why. What do you guys think? Has this been your experience? Let me know in the comments section.
