poets can be goddamned cowards with pretty little tongues

poetry
is an excuse
to hide
the truth
behind flowery words
metaphors
disguise pain
or carve edifices
to ideals
saying so much
without revealing
anything

maybe
i am not
a poet
maybe
i am just
a coward

so fuck it

i love
how you
make me feel
i love
your quirks

i just love you.
