Write A Poem With You In Mind

I wonder if it would be OK if I asked for your name
After this one slow dance
So at night when all is quiet and dark
I can write a soft spoken poem with you in mind

A haiku or Tanka of sorts will be great for starts
But 5-7-5…with added syllables of 7-7 wouldn’t do
This brief moment of our souls meeting square
Holding a lifetime so intense and wildly bare


Dark dreary quiet and gloom
The clouds feel and see no warmth
Hanging their heavy heads low
They burst forth in tears
