If I were conventional I would have written you a love letter

(I)

If I were conventional I would have written you a love letter

Told you about my story, predicament and stature

Give bits and pieces of my soul for you to play with

Your brow would furrow bemusing over our ascend

(II)

If I were conventional I would have written you a love letter

Sitting on my favourite chair by a mahogany table

The leather seat would dip a little as I rest my back

I would leave the overlay window open for sunlit zephyr

                                     ***

And the picturesque view of calm will have my mind in stir

Little hearts drawn on the corners of the fragrant paper

An epiphany can be formed between you and me

With careful precision of a skilled calligraphist

The words to my incoherent thoughts will suffice

(III)

I would start the letter with an endearment “Dear”

All my thoughts I would lay before you without fear

May even ask “How are you?” without perspiration or stutter

In words that flow through my system i’ll make you understand

Of my story predicament and stature

***

Similar to rivulets of water on a chilled glass

Reaching down to form an impressionable mask

With every emotion i left exposed through my words

I will encircle and seep into walls around your heart

***

If i were conventional i would have written you a love letter

You would be my only confession of guilty pleasure

And in my story we would have “our forever” written in endless chapter
