Just Say It

(Third place winner of Writer’s Carnival’s Poet-less Poetry contest!)

I tried to sing a ballad,
But my voice was way off key.
I tried to paint a picture,
But I draw so terribly.

I tried to cite a sonnet,
But I messed up every rhyme.
I tried to dance a solo,
But I couldn’t keep the time.

So I’m writing you this poem
In the hope you’ll find it fun.
You know I’d never work this hard
To please just anyone.

For life is far too fleeting
And my feelings far too true
To find a boring way of saying,
“Darling, I love you!”
