I’ll place you upon my page momentarily,

for the world to see us in our entirety.


I wont need beautiful words to recreate our fire,

or a vocabulary precariously  laced in desire.

There is no perfect rhyme or beat or flow

that can recreate this unceasing glow.

Imagery will only describe the contours of our love,

metaphors will compare it only, mundanely, to other stuff.

Poets of the past whisper of its nature in the blank spaces

of the pages where their own thoughts were  once traced.

I’ll place you on my page momentarily,

so we can see ourselves, entirely.
