I wish I could eloquently express with words
How I feel about you
You deserve sonnets to written about you
By people who are masters of lusciousness
you deserve prose like summer rain
that flows with ease into streams
you deserve more than my attempts of poems of
the spoken word
I want to write you wonderful lengthy verses
of how beautiful are, I want to express what you mean
I want to show you off to the world, through words
but in all honestly you know that’s not me!
I don’t deal in ‘airy fairy’ expressions of the heart
I don’t need or want to dress up words that truthfully in the end
lose meaning, get lost in translation from thought to parchment
in truth why have twenty six words when three only really matter
What I am really trying to say to you is I LOVE YOU
