FOREWORD: So someone (whose name you’ll know soon enough) has a crush on our dear sweet Chestnut. This someone has a magic with words, and decided to cast a spell for us to read and delight in, and for Chestnut to know and…well, (who knows) perhaps step up his game. 😀
Here’s the poem. Read and enjoy.
The first time we said, “Hello…”
It felt as though pterodactyls were flapping their wings against the corridors of my stomach.
That day, Cupid didn’t have an arrow large enough to hold an emotion this size
So he hijacked a plane and flew it into my chest.
You make me want to jump off the highest building in the city
Just to prove that I’m invincible with you next to me.
And if I was to say that I really, really, really wanted to get to know you
That would just be an understatement.
I want to pour your thoughts in a wine glass and sip them
Slow and strong, like I’m going on vacation
I want to light candles, and bathe for hours
In secrets that you’ve not had the chance to say out loud
I’m ready to grab onto your dreams and jump into a pool head first
Just to see if hope still floats.
I want to glide next to you
I’m talking, ten feet above a cumulus of clouds
So no one can rain on our parade.
You see, if I could, I would sing a song for you.
If I could, I would write you a poem.
If I could, I would sample your smile,
And then let my heart beat the baseline
And we would create the greatest love song whenever we stand next to each other.
We would make such music
So that if my friends ask if you’re my boyfriend
I’ll say, “No, he is my musician…”
And me, I guess you could say, that I’m your favorite song.
And I know what you’re thinking
That I’m just some love-sick fool
But tell me what you would do if you saw the most beautiful flower
I mean, even if you don’t like flowers, but you just saw this one flower that took your breath away
A flower so beautiful that even the hardest of thugs stopped to say, “Yo, that flower’s kinda nice”
A flower so beautiful that a mere glance doesn’t suffice
Because it entices you to get closer
What would you do?
Would you not pick the flower to claim for yourself?
Or would you leave it there so that someone else can see it too?
