Can you show me where your love lies,
Amidst these remnants from suitors,
Pasted on the canvas of my heart.
Can you tell me
If love were a letter, what words would you use
Would you write the pleasures concealed behind your virtuous lips,
Scribe those desires too shameful to display
If love were a colour, which one would you choose
Red for passion, or blue for peace
Green for growth, or yellow for joy
What love do you seek and what love do you bring
If love were a font
Then how would you inscribe
What intimate twirls would you flourish
What sensual lines would you draft
If I read your love note aloud
Which sound would those words make
Which rhythm would they take
Would they sing of love
Or whisper of need.
Write deep and write true
As long as it’s you, it’ll have to do
Tell me you love me,
then show it to me too.
Sadje’s photo prompt really flicked on the romantic switch.
Emotions put in words are memories we can always remember.
I hope you enjoy this.
Stay safe and stay loving.
