Stereotypical, Cliché Poem

Stereotypical, Cliché Poem

A Poem by Grenouille Rousse

I was going to write you a poem...

I was going to write you a poem
But then I realized
That it would sound just like
Every poem you read on Tumblr
Or Facebook
Or Twitter
Or whatever.

But if I did
Write that poem
I would have written about
All these cliché things
Like how I want to
Wrap you up in blankets
And cuddle while we watch movies
Probably some classics from the 80s.

I would write about
Us wearing sweaters
And watching the leaves fall
Drinking some hot beverage
Maybe something with chai
Or pumpkin spice
Or gingerbread.

I'd say things about
Building forts with sheets
And pillows
And couch cushions
And when we're done
Set up a string of lights
Pretending they're stars.

In that poem
I would probably say something about
Your eyes
Behind your glasses
But I feel like an idiot
Because I don't even know
What color they are.

Of course I'd write about
Kissing you
How everything could be perfect
Everything could be beautiful
Everything could be real.
We wouldn't have to worry
About what they say
About what we hear
About anything.

I would put that all in a poem
But it would be just like
Every other poem you could find
Written by a girl like me.
I'm sorry I can't write you something
More creative.
