For you

I’m writing this just for you
a broken avenue or two
a broken arrow
crossed out for you

I’m writing this for you
a cab ride, a 20 for you
a smile and a wave
Im writing for you

golden hair swept aside by rain
a dreamers dreaming of you
Im writing this for you

its all i got for you
its all i have is to wander and play
its all I have to say

i think of you.

  1. Borg! So awesome to see you and read your words! 🙂 And always…to have that one in your head, to think…(obsess) can be the greatest gift to give…or the sharpest knife to turn. Two sides to this fence post! Love it

  2. This is the kind of poem that could be left anonymously in a public place for someone to discover. Something I’ve never done, but thought about doing. It could really make someone’s day.

  3. I really like this, its solid, I LOVE the repetition and I love the rhyming…
    I played with it a little, just because I felt like it could be smoother. I kept wanting it to rhyme and it felt disjointed to me when it didnt.
    so this is just me playing around, please just trash or ignore my comment if you dont like…but this is what I did.

    golden hair swept aside by rain
    a dreamers dreaming a refrain
    Im writing this, all the same

    its all i got for you, my day

  4. This poem is perfect as is; it is what it is and does what it does, and changing it is like those people who decided they had to rewrite and punctuate all of Emily Dickinson’s poems and make them rhyme.(!!) I especially like the ending few lines, the way they present the narrator –who he is, as well as his feelings and thoughts. Good to see you at dVerse, Borg, and very good for me, to get to read this. It’s a damn good poem.
