can you promise to keep
your sugar-coated words
dripping with poetic tendencies
for the days when my heart
needs to remember your passion?

perhaps if you could save
your lovely syntax for a time
when only carefully placed
adjectives can mend my composure,
and delirious rhymes are
the only medicine to my sadness,
your precious breaths would be
better
spent.

  Very creative! This is so relatable for me, as I think it would be for many others on this site. I loved the lines. “when only carefully placed // adjectives can mend my composure,”.
