In honor of Poem in Your Pocket Day, here’s a poem I wrote a few years ago called “An External Conversation.”
Don’t say things like that…
It drives me crazy…
You’re so beautiful.
You’re not so bad, yourself.
No one’s ever said it so seriously,
Truly, you’ve made me realize
But have I done the same
I’ll always be in debt,
in the red.
Does your heart ask the question?
If it does, then I do,
The answer will always be
Do we really need time?
I’ll admit, I’m a bit delusional,
and you’ve gotta admit,
you’re a little too kind-hearted.
Patience is something I long for,
and the urgency stirs within me.
I just want you to understand that.
Happy Poem in Your Pocket Day 2017!
