If I Wrote A Poem

If I wrote a poem for you
would you love me?

Would you know how and why
things unfold, unfurl.
The brown, dog-eared pages
of a well told story.

Would you understand that
my heart sings,
that my eyes are full of tears?

Don’t worry,
it’s not your fault.

    ah yes brown pages.
    i usually eat chocolate when reading my favourite books..
    so many people believe that the yellow/brown tint of the pages are because the books are aged… i must correct that fallacy. it is the chocolate! the chocolate from my fingertips.
    ah here ! now it sounds as if i’m fat!

    short and sweet benji. comhghairdeas!

    No ones.
    It’s just one of those things.
