Tired To Write An Emotion - Poem by Suki Nakamura

tried to write an emotion about you,
i wanted it to be a poem, nothing like prose
because i want it not to be evident, something
that can simply be implied from words, this love
that i feel for you, this one that makes me fly like a bird
on top of the highest building in the city so i can see everything
so i can be omniscient, i want it crisp
and neat and divine,
but the more i keep on wishing for something to be

poetic, frankly, i go back to something so mundane
verbose, and worldly and casual
as a conversation within myself
i ask myself again if what i feel for you is love,
let me be honest,
i lied.

    truths are coming out as lies, and lies sometimes forget what is being said. A poet is always alive and write many a things of vision. Best of luck. (Report) Reply
