writing about you is difficult. every cliche comes to mind but i dont write those because who wants to hear it and besides, you deserve originality. the truth is i have so much i want to say to you and yet not a single consonant leaves my regretful tongue. some poet i am. i could write a poem just about your eyes and another one about how much beer you drink. i dont think either would really hit the spot. you are a complex being that i tangle myself up in every other night. i stroke your hair and beg for kisses unable to think about anything but how good your skin feels against mine. and yet when you ask me what i like about you, i flounder again and again. it would be so easy for me just to say i love how observant you are, how you love the rain almost as much as me, how i love when you hold my hand, and how i love that you seem like you need me. its simple and yet when you ask, my mind goes blank and i fail to make you happy. i guess thats always my worry though-- making you happy. but here i am, writing about it instead of telling you. ****.
