An Open Poem to My Husband


Disclaimer: The fine gentleman above is not my husband but a perfect representation of the moment. Sorry honey!

As a writer, I often turn to a journal or my MacBook to express my feelings. One glass of wine and the right (sometimes wrong) mood, and I can bang out some banter in less than five minutes. I keep my epic stash of poetry private because my poems are deeply personal, but I thought I’d share this one. It’s fun, as opposed to the usual serious tone of my poetry, and it brought actual tears to my husband’s eyes. That’s nearly impossible people!

An Open Poem to My Husband

No need to thank me for bearing your child,
Just promise deep kisses and nights that are wild.
And if it appears that I might lose my shit,
That bottle of wine you must not forget.
Not often a reason to ask you for much,
But remember I love fresh flowers a bunch.
I promise to always be loyal to you,
Until the toddler coats my long hair in glue.
I’ll get in my car and go apply for a visa,
Don’t worry my love, I’ll return with a pizza.
Sometimes it feels like we’re growing apart,
But really our love is a flame in the dark.
It drives us both through burdensome days,
Our love transcends that common grave.

As always, thank you so much for visiting and reading!
