I’m writing you this letter,
A letter in a poem,
Because I’m doing this challenge –
A challenge of creativity
So I’m writing you this letter.
I guess I have to make it pretty,
Full of the fluff you love so much,
Because I’m composing a poem
I’m writing you a love letter.
Or a poem,
Whichever you prefer,
Whichever one will help me get the girl.
One day I hope you will hear these words of devotion
Falling forth from my lips
Without petty insecurities clinging to my feelings.
One day I’ll seal this letter with a kiss,
I’ll wear red lipstick for the occasion,
A color you won’t likely forget.
And one day you’ll write me back,
Words of rejection scrawled in your famous hanging indent.
I will read each word in the quiet echo of your voice
And weep over the thin paper clutched in my hands,
Because what’s left for a Prince Charming
Who lacks a Princess to woo?
