If you, then I



3/22/2011

If you were on the ground,
then I would be the floor
and If I had a lock and key,
you’d be an opened door.

If I’m a country road,
then you would be a tree,
tilting-- taunting gravity
to share your shade with me.

If you-- a bowl of ice cream,
then I-- a silver spoon
and if you know how to whistle,
then I know just the tune!

If jewels were what I wanted,
then I would be a rock
and you would be the mountain
putting pressure on the spot.

If I were superstitious,
you’d be my lucky hat
and if you like things even,
well, then I’m alright with that!

If you were a vast ocean,
then I would be the bay
asking for the moon
not to pull the tide away.

If I had asked a question,
then you would be the mark
and if one of us had been a match,
the other’d be a spark!

It has surely become my escape, my late night ritual, my confession. I feel honored to be a part of this community where so many talented poets come together. I appreciate any sentiment and am elated at the opportunity to comment on so many beautiful pieces! more…
