My last poem for April and my last poem for NaPoWriMo’13. Then it’s back to regular prose, fiction and essays.
This is not a NaPoWriMo challenge, but one I heard on NPR somewhere back in January. (If I remember correctly.) My granddaughter, Emma, and I planned to work on this together, but alas we both got too busy. So here’s my attempt to write a love poem in “texting” language.

BHIMGO Bloody hell, I must be getting old. Here is the translation. Or as Emma tells me: “I no gmas txt. WW&P” (Whole words and punctuation.)
Text to Speech – I Love You
You are too good to be true
Thank you. You too.
I think I’m in love. Wink,Wink, Nudge, nudge.
I haven’t a clue; I don’t know. Who?
My heart is too complicated to explain to you.
Please, it’s okay. I won’t judge.
One to one, face to face. Meet for coffee, our usual place. Starbucks.
Why wait? Tell me. Please, It’s okay. What the F***.
You never know, it could be you.
Too good to be true, I love you, too.
Crying real big tears, and God knows what else.
Love you forever, my heart time two for yourself.
Bye-by for now. You, I already miss.
As early as possible: Hugs and kisses.
Kiss on the lips until we meet.
Enough. Being annoyed by you now.
Been there done that. Boo-hoo.
Love you forever?
