If I were a Poem

I’d flutter like a leaf
pretending to be a butterfly.

I’d glisten like lacquered branches
to kindle a dying light.

I’d leave ink-blotted tears on a page
to be later thrown aside.

I’d express my love and devotion
as if it were the sweetest little lie.

So, why?
Why such ambiguity and tone?

It’s who I’d be, if I were a poem.
