A Generic Love Poem

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
 

I will not write you a love poem.

It is a tedious process

and not worth the time.

My time would be better spent

describing the beauty of rose petals

or recounting conversations over cigarettes.

I would rather walk through a park

feeling the snow crunch beneath my feet

watching children wage war

with weapons of compacted crystals.

I would much prefer to travel

to see the sights outside this city

to experience the people and places

that I would never get to

if I had written you a poem,

for writing a poem about

the infinite ways in which

I love you

would be a lifelong undertaking.

Very nice ending, it was definitely taken in a different direction.
