thank you

i try to write about you
in a cut-up
but there is so much that
needs to be put together
rather than beside

so much that needs more than inference

or the silky sheets
of metaphor

what a relief it is to be direct
and just say
that I like you

and that
you make me happy

    • Cool, thank you, Gabrielle – I wondered whether it was too simple before posting it!

      Actually, I should have realised before, this piece is actually not as devoid of poetic device as I thought. Even likening ‘metaphor’ silky sheets is guilty of what I was trying to avoid! πŸ™‚
