30/30: day twenty-seven - the poem I'd never write

day twenty-seven prompt: Begin with the title "The Poem I'd Never Write." Then, write a poem to accompany that title.

the poem I'd never write

there are so many things
I'd like to say to you

but the words
are stuck somewhere

in the back of my brain,
in the place where

all of the missing memories
are stored.

of all of the poems
I have ever written

none have been for you,
because to give a poem

is a gift -
a gift that I am not sure

you are worthy of.
