I tried to write you a love song.

I tried to write you a love song-
by Emily Sturgill 5/18/14

I tried to write you a love song
but it was too sappy
and all my words fell out
fell out of my lips
fell out of the trees above
fell out of my kiss
fell out of the mist

the words fell down round my knees.
and I could not sing
too pretty.

I tried to write you a love song
but it was too sappy
and all my words fell out
fell out of my lips
fell out of the trees above
fell out of my kiss
fell out of the mist

The words were just
too damn silly
I knew you would laugh
you would call it bad poetry.

the words fell down round my knees.
and I could not sing
too pretty.

I tried to write you a love song
but it was too sappy
and all my words fell out-

they just were too heavy
too steamy, too dreamy, too much
fantasy
faced by the scruffy reality
of your unshaven neck, two day stubble
the rumble of your sleeping snore
the comfort of-

the perfect fit
of your hand like a glove
onto my own.

What words could fit this?

The words were just
too damn silly
I knew you would laugh
you would call it bad poetry.

I tried to write you a love song
but it was too sappy
and all my words fell out
fell out of my lips
fell out of the trees above
fell out of my kiss
fell out of the mist.
