25.

all I cannot compromise
or rhyme I offer
in a word

what does it mean to say I love you?

if you cannot love me, love
how deep is sorrow?

though i may not sell
my passion
I would share its shadows
fairer than forever and too TRUE
for telling

when I can no longer
touch you
          hold you
when a million cold nights
have charred the embers of your eyes like
morning smothering the fire
we tended
once upon a
shore

I’ll love you while dawn lingers
but the memory of our one
night never made you LOVE me
and I will not crave the taste of your hair
nor comfort in your kisses
always

I can face the truths of losing
but          you only
         almost
taught me how to cry.
