do you justice

all of my poetic words and phrases
are locked up tight in my heart tonight
leaving me with everything else
circling my brain

i desperately want to write something
to you
for you
that’s just where my mind has been

but you deserve a bed of roses
a sea of sunflowers
fields of poppies
tulips and azaleas

so i’ll retire my tablet for tonight
hoping a quiet night
and a good rest
will find me at sunrise
poised to do you justice
