Clear

Commit your heart

to clarity

I beg of you

my love

It does not

become you

To be obtuse

or foggy.

In your

proclamation

of adoration

In your desire to be

vague yet comical

In your quest to conquer

the unfathomable

I beg of you

try again.

Be full of life

and exhort the thrills

Of love’s deep yearning

to fill my soul

With a clearness

that shines

as a crystal moon

A clearness that

mutes

all

words.
