Just in case I get hit by a bus before august of 2023 (feeling imminent bus hit vibes at the moment for reasons), I wanna do something special for my boyfriend’s birthday. Safe to talk about it here because he only reads posts I call to his attention. Anyway, I’d like to write him a poem, but I can’t think of an approach that feels right.
He doesn’t like to think about his corporeal existence so talk about how he physically appeals to me should probably be kept to a minimum. I’m way out of practice being romantic because I excised most of those feelings from my head in response to some bad relationships past, and the rest bled out when age diminished my ardor (sez the 46 year old geezer).
Any poets, bards, or modern day troubadours in my audience have a notion? A form or structure for poems you’re liking lately? An angle for waxing poetic when inspiration is hard to pin down? I could contemplate this guy in writing here, but he’s a private person and I’d best not. Not sure what to say.
