A Poem by Daniel Winters

I'm a bit bored of all this over-the-top romance

When I think of love, 
I don't think of eternally holding hands, 
In front of setting suns.
I think of holding onto these moments,
Between us, 
For all we're worth, 
Praying the sun will rise the same way tomorrow.

But just because I don't believe in forever,
Doesn't mean I don't want this to last.
Just because I don't rhyme;
'me' and 'you' 
with 'free' and 'true'
Doesn't mean I'm ashamed to admit it. 
And just because I don't 
'Compare thee to a summer's day'
Doesn't mean your not worthy of those words. 
I've just got different ways of telling you that.

I could hide my opinions of yo,
With a touching metaphor, 
Or a thoughtful simile,
Or even say I'd do the impossible for you. 
But I only use words I mean. 
And I'll keep using these words,
Until I can't feel them anymore. 

And the words Ill use for you are:
and 'You'
