This is Not what I wrote for you...

there is a poem within a poem

as it swells and stretches
words on paper

trying hard
to break through
myriad hues
with which i paint
my obvious feelings

but no, it won’t rest
till i have waded

through

trippy metaphors
trailing anaphors
toppled similes
lying crushed
at the margins
of my poetic hubris

and strung a fresh one
stripped off my pretensions

hope brimming my eyes
wishfully plead

you smile

ahh…my words
breath awaited
sigh relief

Is it? Hmm...clearly Blue is very, very smart. Or...never mind. Didn't like the poem. But hey, I'm just an ass hole with an opinion. Cheers and later. Will be back. Not sure why. Hope you don't mind. Avi
