Writing Out Loud

Passerby’s ask why
Trying to reply to everyone
Smudging out words,
But I only write out a few.

“That’s really quite pretty,”
They begin to say,
A tear falls down my cheek,
The ink swirls away,
Writing just enough to get by,
Hurrying through the laundry
And the rain.

I’m getting drenched,
Letting boats go, but I won’t sink,
As paper sailors row,
So I just wait here with no refrain.
Trying to form something
A more intelligent way.

How to say it…
I have so much to tell you,
But with so little ink,
So I’ll just say it
That I just love you; I do.
It’s all I can thinks about
That’s it until I find better words,
So these will just have to do.
