if i could write you a poem

a way for me to express my frustration at not being able to perfectly put into words how i felt about someone. wanting to write him a poem to tell him how much he meant. ironically, this poem ended up being the closest thing to a fulfillment of that desire :)

if i could write you a poem
maybe then i'd be fine


i could
bury my head in the verses
string my heart up between 
the lines


knock on your door with
words made of metaphor
dive deep inside, then
hide


behind boulders of description
painting abstract pictures of 
what you might mean to me 
possibly


throw simile rocks
at your window and 
when you approach, suddenly
expose my soul


without rhythm or rhyme
i'm
not sure what you'd think of me


but 
if i could write you a poem
maybe then i'd see

The End
