NapoWriMo Day Nine: I Love You

This one sounds simple, but it can be pretty difficult. Today, I challenge you to write a poem that includes a line that you’re afraid to write. This might be because it expresses something very personal that makes you uncomfortable – either because of its content (“I always hated grandma”), or because it seems too emotional or ugly or strange (“I love you so much I would eat a cockroach for you”). Or even because it sounds too boring or expected (“You know what? I like cooking noodles and going to bed at 7 p.m.”). But it should be something that you’re genuinely a little scared to say. Happy (or if not happy, brave) writing!

I love you

After everything that’s happened, after all that I’ve been through

The thing I’m most afraid to say, is those three words, I love you

I’ve been there, done that, and I’ve bought the t-shirt

But if I say those words again, will I end up getting hurt?

To open up my heart, and confess to someone new

They’ll have to be special, and be someone who

Will take me as I am, and won’t want to change me

Accept my strengths, my flaws, not try to rearrange, she

Will be sensual, and loving, adventurous, and kind

Beautiful, and playful, all these things combined

Intelligent, and confident, loyal, and true

Be down to earth, and funny, does this sound like you?

Searching  life’s ocean, looking for my pearl

I think I may have found her, are you my perfect girl?
