I want to build you a kingdom out of my sentences,
An empire out of my words.
I want you to come home to a house fashioned by metaphors and hyperboles.
I want you to hear only the onomatopoeias that come out of my letters.
I want you to peel apart the walls and look at all the paintings to read through my lines.
I want you to crack open the floor boards, look under the tables,
And find what was meant especially for you.
A Writer’s Love Story
This poem examines the love that most writers experience. The love that exudes from our pens to the tattered pages of our journals. It presents the combination of the love to write, as well as the love to love. This poem is just a longer way to say I love you.
