i won’t

the last thing the world needs is another sappy piece of pedantic prose proclaiming the platitudes of love

how many lines can be written about the way my heart skips a beat when you smile that secret smile of ours

another stanza dedicated to the inherent joy of simply knowing you exist as a boon in a world that has taken so much

the world doesn’t need to read yet another verse comparing your beauty to the sunset over the ocean in bursts of rapturous color

they are all frankly sick of the love sick poet spilling line after line about his fathomless love for what he deems perfection

so i shall refrain from pouring out another refrain of beauty uncontained with breathless yearning for your touch

it is unnecessary when all they have to do is see the look in my eyes then joy down their own sickly sweet ode

so i won’t
