Let Me Write A Poem

If not a love song, let me write a poem

For now under nightly stars,

Their shine flowing out

Of my dark-tipped pen

Onto the empty page.

The moon will shape notes

Onto paper until I can hum along,

Ride the coach my horses draw,

Paint the portraits lovers saw

Together, in silence.

I shall remain content

In my lonely-letter looks;

I shall keep my ink bleeding

And carry my heart to the next suitor.

  1. This is beautiful. I cannot write a love song or a love poem, for that matter. But I can write words on a page, to be read or not….scribbles of thoughts and feelings. I think I am writing a poem amongst the words of this comment;)
