I want to give you--a love poem
A love poem
Is what I feel like writing you tonight
But my words they have sprouted wings
And flown away
I am left watching.
A crushing hug
Is what I want to surround you with tonight
But my arms, they have frozen
And lie limp by my side
I am left seeking.
A lingering kiss
Is what I want to give you tonight
But my lips, they will not stop smiling
As your name whirls around
I am left longing in silence.
So I weave a blanket
Of your thoughts
Pull them over my head
Secure in your warmth, your love
As I put my aching lips, arms and words to rest
And gift you a love poem.
