Oh, how I cherish the moments we get to share.

Existence seems so useless and unfulfilling alone, but
when you’re with me it’s as if your touch makes me come
alive. I feel your hands on my head, behind my neck, and
all that is discordant in me blends into perfect harmony.

When you hold me close and stroke me with your fingertips
I fairly want to burst into song. The world becomes such a
melodic place at times, that I believe those in our presence
are moved by our relationship.

We don’t get to be with each other as much I know you’d like.
I wish it could be more too, because it seems that the more time
we spend together, the better we are together. Still, I know I’m
not the only one who has claims on you, so let’s just be thankful
for what we can have.

Don’t you think we make beautiful music together?

I do so love being your guitar.

This is nice, but I there's one thing I can't really figure out - if it weren't for the line breaks, I think this reads like prose. Was it intended as prose or a poem??

It’s out of character for me, but it’s not a poem. I much
prefer to leave the prose to people like you who have
such a talent for it.

The breaks just came out that way because the last time
I tried to paste something containing long lines in here,
(a poem), everything got chopped in places I didn’t
want. So now I deliberately shorten things beforehand.
Guess I got carried away. Didn’t mean to confuse you.

Keep writing. I love your stuff.

I keep wanting this to be a poem as well...
