Write More

I need to write more when I’m in love. 

I need to stop holding your hand on these long Malibu walks 
And write more. 
I need to stop staring deeply into your eyes across the dinner table 
And write more.
I need to stop watching you dance through the night
And write more.  
I need to take a longer break between kisses, 
Pull out my journal 
And write more. 
I need to stop thinking about how I’m going to make you mine.
And write more. 
I need to stop planning our future together
And write more.
I need to stop imagining you holding our son
And write more. 
I need to stop smiling at the thought of us
Old and gray, hand in hand, 
And write more. 

Because I know like you know 
That poems always last longer 
Then love.
