write and ruin it

here i am
writing
you told me to
i'm listening

you bought 
me this book
I love it
i thought 
if i never looked 
at it
it'd stay new
like it 
was when it last
touched you

i have a thing
for keeping things new...

i said i'd write
and ruin it
you said please write and ruin it
so i did
yet I didn't...

i love you baby
i love you jeremy

you make me beautiful
I thought you should know
you make me beautiful

you sang about an ocean 
and mountain
an ever changing
running away ocean
and a mountain that always stays
you always stay
thank you 
for every time you stay

and I love you for that jeremy

see?
it's written in
but not ruined,
hundreds of times
poems about you
spilled from my pen
hundreds of rhymes
about you
but never your name
this is the
first time your name
any name
ever dared
be in my poem
and its yours, it is yours, it is yours
and it feels so at home.

thank you 
for putting my poems to paper again
