If I Were To Write You A Love Letter

An image
of you is
how I’d start,
preparing myself
to write

Pretending
to work up
all my nerves
to express what’s
on my mind

I’d say
my heart
it chose you
first, and I guess
my heart was right

For all
my thoughts
are filled with
you as you
control my time

I’d want
to explain
your affect on
me when you
simply say hello

How a
normal look
or your perfect
smile can turn
my day around

I’d want
to write about
your face and
the loveliness
you show

How I
succumb to
all your beauty
for in its hold
I’m bound

I’d follow
by, outlining
things, I love
about you
most

Your caring
kindness and
tender ways
and the grace
that you possess

I’d write
how I could
die the night
the day I hold
you close

And detail
all that I
would give to
feel your warm
caress

If I were
ever to write
this letter I’d
have so much
to say

This letter
of love I’d
write to you
conveying my
feelings deep

I’d hope
the words
I write to
you would help
me find a way

To bring
your heart
within my own
and make my life
complete

Written in Texas -2012

    Thats the story you should be writing about. Get into the muck, let the feelings flow, overwhelm us. Don't be afraid of getting dirty! Make us feel the pain.
