I wanna Write A Love Poem – Bridgette Burton

Happy Valentine’s Day folks!

As we celebrate this day, I am in the category of folks who want to fall in love. But I am not there yet so I wrote this back in December. I thought it timely for today though.

 

I wanna write a love poem

Heartbreak and healing is making my pen exhausted
Tears are staining too many pages in my journal
I wanna write a love poem
I want to be able to share all the love I see on my IG and Facebook timelines daily
And turn it into beautiful metaphors and catchy quotes
Cuz when I see those couples
His eyes
Her smile
Their touches
Hands holding
Head on shoulder
Eyes closed
Taking in each other
I melt
I try to live through them and their love
I wanna write a love poem
That uses song lyrics from Chrisette Michele
“Cause love’s my permission to be who I am, no inhibitions cause you understand, freedom to breathe oh baby, love is you”
You
I wanna write a love poem about you
You whoever you are
Right here in front of me waiting to be unveiled
Or you who I will eventually meet
But whoever you are
I wanna write a love poem about you
How you make my heart Smile
How there is always a smile on my face
How I can tell you anything
How you listen to everything
How everytime I see you I want to fuck you
How you know that
So you tease me a little
How our lovemaking leaves us on a high hours after
But it never goes down
Because I love to make love
I wanna write a love poem about how we just vibe and connect
Beyond physical attraction
Beyond emotions
It’s spiritual

It’s religious

And even when I hate using both words
It’s the best way I can describe how our spirits are matched to be in this moment
How our spirits understand each other and God
Beyond labels and titles so in our worship for His greatness for our union
We embody the Word, His will that is manifested within us
I wanna write a love poem about protection
How I want my love to feel safe and secure
I struggle with trust
My heart is in repair
But I want this love to break down these walls and restore
I want this Love to heal and Men in Black my pain so that I never have to feel it again
I wanna write a love poem about sacrifice
How my love will invoke daily actions of sacrifice for each other
How my love will be our love
How our love will be an active verb
Not a noun
I wanna write a love poem that has volumes to it
That one piece just isn’t enough to describe it
So I will always be writing to explain it
Needing more journals more pens more open mics to perform it
So that it will make sense to me and even then I don’t want it to make sense
That deep down in our hearts we just know
I wanna write a love poem about a love I’m so wrapped up in
That it inspires another artists to try and write a love poem about us
damn
That would be some good love huh?
Hey you
I need you to help me write a love poem
