"When I Said"

A rhetorical 'could,'
And catching my...myself,
"May I love you?"

'But you only disagree
as so little you know me.'
--My chronic delusion,
Exceeding devotion,
A surrounding sense
--The way I wish
-I once could,..

Let me now with no reason;...
could you not and still accept

My Focus,
You have the beauty of meaning to me...?
Won't you

The vapid inch of insular flinch,
This ailing to alary heart, you've given
--a piquing myth, the rawest quip
In this, my estimation of essence.

With so many..,
but no push toward..,..
...just to refrain.
