My pen's in love with you

I write in moods that wax and wane

That come and go with every day. A

Little love, some raw despair, a kiss

Or two, a place somewhere. I add a

Little imagery, the beauty of a girl I've

Seen, her hair, her face, her worry lines

Did he come home at all last night?


I try to write through dark-days too

To hide the pain of losing you. It

Sometimes works but not today, can't

Concentrate, can't see my way, to

Write of things as I once could, when

Words came easy through your love

I'd slide from bed and write for hours

Until the candlestick went out


The candlestick is close to hand, in

Time perhaps I might pretend to hear

You breathing, hear you sigh, ink my

Pen and start to write. Sad to say, my

Pen's no fool, I might dream, but it

Won't do, it has a sense of loyalty too

Like me, my pen's in love with you
