For Fear That My Words Shall One Day Be Thought Of As Redundant, I Write This

Poem By Nick Jankowski

I bring to you now
the same message
as I have
a hundred times before
I'm rearranging the letters
to make my message clearer,
stronger,
more defined
I yearn to let you
know my passion
in its highest form
But I pray that you would
silence me before
my words ever become
played-out lines
which
are merely disregarded;
lost in the static
of everyday conversation
Just as candy should never
become the main course
to a meal
I hope that my declaration
of love for you
does not fade into
some tainted idea
of a casual
modern affair
