If Only

I wish I could make this easier on you.

If only my touch

Would allow you to read my thoughts,

For just a moment,

Because that would be all that you needed

To know how much I love you.


And with that touch

Would come reassurance

That what I feel for you,

Exceeds my metaphors

In my poetry,

That I only write for you.

It only serves as a glimpse

Of what you do to my mind,

And my heart,

Every second.
