THIS POEM IS NOT FOR YOU

 

 

I’m sorry you have to read this.
It is not for you. What you are reading
Is me writing to somebody else
Who has a mouth I want to kiss.

There is nothing for you here
And not in the sense of false, or true.
You have no context for what she and I do.
In every sense this poem is not for you.

If you saw my love in a picture
You still wouldn’t know.
There is just something about her…

Am I wise to let this go?
Should I have more faith in language?
But that’s precisely it—I do.
I am using language to make an important point:
The impossibility of this poem being able to say anything to you.
It is her mouth I want to kiss.
You will have to be satisfied with this.

    Forgive me for intruding – and enjoy her mouth.

    Does this mean you don’t want to see me anymore? Is it truly over between us?

    I actually quite like this, now that I’ve gotten a bit more used to your style. It’s also quite sexually arousing. Could you bring yourself to write us some outright smut?

    Ashu,

    The ink should be warm but not so warm that it drips and runs.
