I Don’t Write Love Poems

I don’t write love poems 

Never with my pen 

I didn’t know that I hid everything that I felt 

Now my tears are doing all of the writing 

I have left rivers flowing in every room of my house 

I can’t swim in them or I will drown

I move out of the way when I come across them 

And every time I see the river flowing, I am thinking of you 

I am always thinking of you

You won’t save me 

And I won’t save me

I will sit in my sorrow until I can’t cry anymore 

Until the rivers dry up 

Until I stop loving you
