Writing You A Poem

Writing you a love letter is simple

Your thought fills my paper

I don’t make it abstract

I make it as clear as ice

But you receiving it is different

It goes through water

The letters get smudged

It loses its rosy sent

Even though I drenched it in my perfume and kissed it

Your mind is the ocean

Please let it sit out to dry

I need you to read what it says

Read it at night

Use the moon’s light

Listen to the waves

Understand from where it came

But I know you’ll just toss it aside.




At Adibah’s, we look for poetry that removes us from our everyday lives and into the world of the words.
