i wanted to write you a poem

i wanted to write you a poem
one all fluttery and silent
   as it tickled on your tongue
       breathing your breath

but my words are tumbled and tripped
   slipped and fallen into jagged pieces
just tiny fragments of thoughts
    none as bright as the memory of you

i release them into muse’s night
entrusting lonely moon to ensnare them
   spin them into silver silken web
      to be laid across your sleeping brow

so that on the morrow’s wakening
your tongue is tickled silent
   by the quiet memory of me
