Good sir, you need not fear
And all your doubts I shall not hear
Each claim is surely untrue
Please take this as a cue.
I don't pretend to know you well
Yet, for you, a spark has dwelled
In the deep recesses of my greying heart-
An instant understanding spawned by art.
I would that you were at my side
One moment when our identities can't hide.
Ours could be a union unmatched.
From that shell would new life unhatch
I wonder if you would comply-
Bid that dark cell good-bye
Ponder all that we might be;
Do not let your gaze pass over me.
