What Poems

What poems will I write for you
when I know you
when the sweet syllables of your name
run succulent and honeyed
along my tongue

What words
will I rhyme and tie
to the allusions that bring the mind
to the color of your hair
the mind behind
your eyes

I wish I could see you now
in perfect clarity
I wish I could know you now
leave little musings like these
inked on sweet-scented paper
each hand-delivered
to your doorway

or tucked gently under the wiper
on the windshield of your car

I wish I could do more than wish
wait and wonder
I wish I could compose something
more suited
more substantial
but we both must wait
until the days
we'll spend together
can coalesce into sacred moments
full of details
ripe for the pursuit of poetry
ripe for the pages
of a book we'll write
