I Chose to Write

Standard

Since words elude my tongue, I chose to write
my declaration of intent to woo
upon this page so innocent and white.

Far more than mere affection, I invite
the words and acts that some say are taboo–
since words elude my tongue, I chose to write.

I wish my pen would set your eyes alight,
as all my hopes are placed within your view
upon this page so innocent and white.

Though you may see this note as impolite,
It nonetheless says only what is true.
Since words elude my tongue, I chose to write.

I strive to get each line exactly right
and pray that my sincerity comes through
upon this page so innocent and white.

All afternoon and on into the night
I pondered how to share these thoughts with you.
Since words elude my tongue, I chose to write
upon this page so innocent and white.
