[Insert your name here],

I wrote a poem about you
It began simply
I listed some of your good qualities
For example:
You listen like God listens
and
You’re so kind and honest
and then
somewhere toward the middle
I felt brave enough to say
(in riddles and symbols, of course)
that I love you
that I’m so afraid to tell you
and I even wrote your name there
but I won’t do that here
and it ended on a sad note
as those days do
always, one more day
that I did not tell you

your unmocking spoof said...

you didn't say it directly to said person.
somehow i think you say it everyday.
