MY INK IS THIN...(a valentine offering of sorts)

my quill is blunt,
dipped in holy water
from heart’s inkwell,
rusty nib
scratching kisses
onto thirsty parchment.
my ink is thin,
lacking iron
to show its will
in a red passion scrawl
or paint desire
in a sunrise sprawl.
I have no poetry for you tonight,
no words to skate the page
in light-hearted fancy,
no phrases to link arms
in florid design,
no enchanted language
spoken in lyrical chant,
no song
sung in angelic hyms in heaven or earth
to express bursting emotions,
weeping unwritten verses from shaking bones….
all I have are three quietly spoken words,
whispered
on a lonely breath
that shook the cosmos into existence
from time’s forgotten dream
and embraced an expectant heart…..

“I love you”

MY INK IS THIN...(a valentine offering of sorts)
