You Are A Poem

A flexible form
made up of lines
no poet should revise

Never restricted
by rhyme or set tradition
like the haiku or the ghazal

You are free
to roam the rules
versed in syllables
unmeasurable by meter
a visual display of alliteration

Something like an ode
with limitless stanzas
your beauty is reminiscent
of a sonnet or villanelle

I could become myself
in your rhythmic pattern and refrains
reading you everyday and in every way
translating you into a thousand laments until

You were my poem:

      It’s perfectly okay; I’m not against gushy comments. In fact, I enjoy when I have to write them also. Thanks so much. Hope you have a great start to your week!

  2. Beautifully expressed Benjamin!

    That’s beautiful indeed, the metaphor of our significant other being like a poem, very fluid and free, and beautiful.
    Well done Benjamin, keep it up! πŸ™Œ
