Everything I'm Not.





I'm no artist, but I can paint you a picture with my words.

I'm no poet, but I can think of one hundred and one ways to tell you I love you.

I'm no astronaut, but I can take you to the moon and fly us through the stars til we reach the heavens.

I'm no Superman, but I can catch you when you fall from the sky.

I'm no Clark Kent, but I will write all about it, under a mask, and not tell you it was me.

I'm no magician, but I can make us disappear from this world.

I'm no wise man, but I can follow your star until I find you.

I'm no French man, but I can introduce myself in french. Je m'appelle Insolence.

I'm no gardener, but I can pull out your weeds even if my hands get cut.

I'm no Spiderman, but I can kiss you passionately in the rain. Even upside down if you want.

I'm no preacher, but I can write a three hour sermon about your eyes.

I'm no singer, because well, I can't sing. At all. But that doesn't mean I won't try to serenade you.

I'm no advertisement, but I can try to convince you to want to be with me in 30 seconds.

I'm no homeless man, but I can beg for you to be my shelter.

I'm no hobbit, but I can travel miles on perilous roads to give you a ring. *will you marry me?* Precious, I know.

I'm no hairdresser but I can play with your hair for hours on end.

I'm no French man, but I can French kiss.

I'm no gatekeeper, but I can try to hold both of our demons back.

I'm no Thomas Edison, but I can light up your world.

I'm no chicken soup, but I can be good for your soul.

I'm no Phantom, but I can make music with you. Scars and all.

I'm no Rauol, but I can be dependable and have nice cheekbones.

I'm no archaeologist, but I can dig up your secrets and piece them together.

I'm no calendar, but I can make every day feel like the weekend.

I'm no Winston Churchill, but I will never, never, never give up on you.

I'm no weather man, but I can touch your warm front or your cold back. The temperature tomorrow has a high of falling asleep while star gazing and a low of separation.

I'm no vagabond, but I can make wandering aimlessly the most fulfilling experience of your life.

I'm no cruise control, but I can have you not worrying about when we get there.

I'm no Leonardo Decaprio, but I can find you in your dreams and fix our reality.

I'm no construction worker, but I can take our bricks and build something for the world to see.

I'm no English teacher, but I can inspire your words.

I'm no alphabet, but I can put "u" and "s" together because us lasts longer than "u" and "i".

I'm no Midas, but I can make your skin golden.

I'm no French man, but I can take you to Paris.























- I'm no Insolence is Bliss, but I can write you this.

  1. I feel like any words I could use to describe this post would be inadequate.
    I hope that somehow, someday, somewhere, someone will love me like this.
    Thank you for making me want to find true love.

    These lines reminded me of what I can do, even while hiding behind who I pretend I am. They make me want to go to Paris with you to see what you think it is, because somehow I don't think we see it in the same light. Thank you for this post, it's truly amazing!!

  7. How many times have I read this?
    Gosh, it's so beautiful.
    And I was thinking, he better end with a good one, I don't see how anything could beat this line (I thought that every line)
    and then,
    "I'm no French man, but I can take you to Paris."
    Whaaaaaaaaat.
