My iambic pentameter has been on the fritz since Christmas and I left my last sack of metaphors in a cab, so I've opted to eschew penning a sonnet and will instead articulate my feelings using an equally sophisticated and time-consuming form of poetry—haiku.
Skin tanned and smooth, legs
small, strong. Luscious curves abound.
I doze in your lap.
Although we only met a scant three days ago, I'm undeniably certain that I've finally found that can't-eat, can't-sleep, reach-for-the-stars, over-the-fence, world-series kind of love that Kirstie Alley's character describes in It Takes Two, the 1995 Warner Bros. comedy starring Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.
As a matter of fact, so undeniably certain am I of my feelings that I've arranged for the subject of the above poem to move in with me. And while I realize the magnitude of such an invitation, it just felt right.
Plus, I had some extra space next to my bookshelf.
