    Poem Commentary

    I wrote this for a dear friend of mine who I am in love with.

    Lines

    Anything, give me anything.
    For you, the value of lines I form into eyes, or lips...
    They
             don't do what they should.

    If they could just

    J
    u
    m
    p

    Off the page, wouldn't that be worth drawing?

    Your eyes.....

    You tell me that you drew something that you actually liked.
    I'm so excited to see it.
    Drawing something you like, that's worth drawing.

    I've always wanted to draw you, but I can't.
    In my mind I mentally outline the shape of your face
    and shade in the Autumn of your eyes.

    Everything, you give me everything.
    And I will draw you, while you're running.
    After your ACL healed.
    And you are free once again.

    Thank you so much. :) This one isn't my favorite, but I do like a couple lines...

    If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.

    Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) American poet.
