Poem: Write about You by Stacie Penney

I cannot write about your
eyes; their every changing blue to grey—
their midnight ringing baby blue—
mirror mine, while laughter
surrounds us.

I cannot write about your
smile; its activity and
motion — first, wide; second,
cocked at the corner — while
blood rushes to our faces.

I cannot write about your
cheeks; their pink
surfaces and dimpled centers
have combined the traits
genetics provides.

I cannot write about you;
static words cannot capture
your dynamic forces.

    The days that I can write something like this make me really happy to have the power of words.
