to write you a letter

I want to write you a letter,
one that’s not full of cliches
or common phrases

how are you what’s new I hope you’re well

I want to share my thoughts
ones that are new and still fuzzy
and those that are old and sharp

Did I mention, remember when

I wish to give something of worth
four words strung with spaces
that mean more together than alone

My heart knows you

I hope to express trust
and a friendship
in words that don’t frighten or diminish

What is, what has been and where we go from here

but I again find myself in a state
where I write what I want
behind scrawling script and three line stanzas

I’m sure I’m someone better when I’m talking with you
