"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,..
Felt.

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
please...
?

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.
