2014 Day 9 – Because I Love You (with apologies to William Carlos Williams)

Because I Love You

I have swallowed
the words
that were in
my mouth

and which
you would probably
not
forgive.

Believe me
They were too vicious
so hard
and so cold.

 

The prompt was rewrite a famous poem, giving it our own spin. The poem I chose was ‘This Is Just To Say’ by William Carlos Williams.
