In Sincerity - Poem by Mathew Lewis

So here I sit on a cold winters night,
With pen and page,
And no idea of what to write.
How do you say ‘I love you’
And mean it?
How do you tell someone you care?
Hollywood stole the magic from those uttered words,
And the world ruined the rest.
We shut ourselves off and hope sincerity will be shown
In the cold digital framework of a cell phone,
Or a hasty ‘see you soon’.
Well I actually mean it,
And I do actually care,
I hope that whenever I mention love,
That the feelings are also there.
Because my friend you deserve all of it,
My words and more,
A sign of what is to come,
And what has gone before.
