The Poet: If I Were A Poem

If I were a poem
I would be sweeter than sweet,
I would meter you in water,
till you sweat, we would meet to be mates.

If I were a poem
I would build you a crib undersea,
It would not crack.

If I were a poem
I would promise you delivering a baby
without pregnancy

If I were a poem
I would make you feel fantastic
in my fantasy.

If I were a poem
I would flight you all over the world
without plight in plane.

If I were a poem
My metaphor would be your name.

If I were a poem
I would paint you with a golden pen.

If I were a poem
I would punch you with rhyming
words of love till you purge,
I would plunge you with spoken
words.

If I were a poem
I would make you sleep like a baby,
wake up on a bed of roses.

If I were a poem
I would entice you to fall in love with me.

If I were a poem
I would propose prose for you to read.

If I were a poem
I would dictate your mind with diction,
in addition, I would be your addiction.
