Modern Love Poems for Him

How Would You Have Me Say

How Would You Have Me Say - love poems for him

Should I write it down on tear stained paper
Till it slowly evaporates; just salty dust
Or should I scream it from the top of my lungs
Till it turns into a galloping hoarse; wanders away

Would you have me mime it with white gloves
Till my hands spasm and my knees lock; a Scot’s Guard
Would you have me sit and contemplate the meaning
Till I nod off; a tea party with a unicorns and beavers

I could pick every rose ever cultivated
Till the pollinators withdraw; a desert battlefield
I could count every ant in every mount
Till infinity and back; a perfect figure 8

But no, I’d rather just simply, plainly, merely, clearly
Say I LOVE YOU
