how about:

feel you like a poem
i always wanted to write
but could never find
the right words.
 — varun

kinda short (coming from someone who only ever writes short poems this is hypocritical, but i'm a fully fledged hypocrit so....)

its kinda nice...add another 5 lines...and it could be really nice

varun's idea is really awesome,
but I still like the simplicity how you had it.
The chinese food spills corn everywhere and has spoiled my mood.

I think varun's variation is just a bit too smart arse. Your poem is clever but in an innocent, loveable way.  Good stuff MP.

I would recommend de-capitalising "Poem" though, but it's up to you of course;-)
