A Verse To Him

A Verse To Him

FOREWORD: So someone (whose name you’ll know soon enough) has a crush on our dear sweet Chestnut. This someone has a magic with words, and decided to cast a spell for us to read and delight in, and for Chestnut to know and…well, (who knows) perhaps step up his game. 😀

Here’s the poem. Read and enjoy.


To Chestnut…

The first time we said, “Hello…”

It felt as though pterodactyls were flapping their wings against the corridors of my stomach.

That day, Cupid didn’t have an arrow large enough to hold an emotion this size

So he hijacked a plane and flew it into my chest.



You make me want to jump off the highest building in the city

Just to prove that I’m invincible with you next to me.

And if I was to say that I really, really, really wanted to get to know you

That would just be an understatement.

I want to pour your thoughts in a wine glass and sip them

Slow and strong, like I’m going on vacation

I want to light candles, and bathe for hours

In secrets that you’ve not had the chance to say out loud

I’m ready to grab onto your dreams and jump into a pool head first

Just to see if hope still floats.

I want to glide next to you

I’m talking, ten feet above a cumulus of clouds

So no one can rain on our parade.


You see, if I could, I would sing a song for you.

If I could, I would write you a poem.

If I could, I would sample your smile,

And then let my heart beat the baseline

And we would create the greatest love song whenever we stand next to each other.

We would make such music

So that if my friends ask if you’re my boyfriend

I’ll say, “No, he is my musician…”

And me, I guess you could say, that I’m your favorite song.


And I know what you’re thinking

That I’m just some love-sick fool

But tell me what you would do if you saw the most beautiful flower

I mean, even if you don’t like flowers, but you just saw this one flower that took your breath away

A flower so beautiful that even the hardest of thugs stopped to say, “Yo, that flower’s kinda nice”

A flower so beautiful that a mere glance doesn’t suffice

Because it entices you to get closer

What would you do?

Would you not pick the flower to claim for yourself?

Or would you leave it there so that someone else can see it too?

    Oh. just saw the author. It’s funny how a single line from your writing just stick with me. first, it was “scratch your name into my back so I will be everything that you live for”

    second was, “I pray my daughter never suffer a heart break and pours her heart online, knowing fully well that the hands that scroll to read, may never hold her again.

    Now this post , “I’m talking, ten feet above a cumulus of clouds
    So no one can rain on our parade.”

    Your words give me so much life that I will literally die at your feet, and let you speak these words that will resurrect me.

    I’m so sorry Absalom, Rapu’m and S_sensei, (your story The Conversation He Had With God was basically for me. months unend, I still read it every week) I have found a new reason on this blog to live through words.

    That said, I really need to send an email to that help line. My depression and confusion have me confused.

        That’s the thing, Chestnut has not shown his face here today. My guess is that is face is still really red from all that blushing.
