Lois Lane In Love

Lois Lane In Love


He’s always diving out an open window
waving goodbye,

but when he does find time for a quick
kiss, a surge of energy floods

my nerves. It's like a power surge
after an outage,

every suburb in my body
lighting up. All night as he circles

the planet, saving Paris, New Delhi,
Minneapolis, I lie on my bed,

adrift in dreams, a cruise ship
on a dark sea, its portals
brightly lit


V1:
Superman and Lois Lane

Just as I think I'm beginning to crack
that boulder in his chest

his phone rings.
"Sorry, Lois. I have to take this…"

and suddenly he's diving out
an open window, waving g'bye.

When he does find time for a quick
kiss, a surge of energy floods

my nerves. It's like a power outage
and suddenly the power grid is online

again, every suburb in my body
lighting up. All night as he circles

the planet, saving Paris, New Delhi,
Minneapolis, I lie on my bed,

adrift in dreams, a cruise ship
on a dark sea, its portals
brightly lit

Really? Cultural gap...lol...you've never seen a Superman movie or tv series or read a Superman comic? You have better tastes than I have!

I smiled. There are nice and stunningly new word combinations in this poem. One moment caught .
