I want to write poetry for you
Laced with perfectly constructed passion
“That love is all there is
Is all we know of Love”
“In one another’s being mingle
Why not I with thine?”
See, the problem
I’m not a very romantic person.
Rose tint not worn well by me
It clashes sharply with my cynicism.
So instead I fill up on bitter irony.
I don’t want our love tainted by that.
-So much for optimism
You were always too good for me anyway.
So I won’t promise you the stars
I know they will burn out.
I won’t say
when I know it won’t always be that way.
But right now,
I know for certain,
I love you
And I hope that is enough.
This poem is one of the first poems I wrote while still in high school Circa 2011!
