Never Love was Spoken
What is that which hides from my expression?
What would I sum in a word or phrase,
even most perfect,
to set aside, finish? Would I never speak of it again;
be troubled by not being able to feel it
except as I have written it,
different from all others
who felt it the same and struggled
or felt it less and tossed it in as approximate,
sufficient to the purpose?
I wish to serve,
to task myself with thoughts of her
that humble my expression
to say at this time, it was so, like, as.
Never love was spoken
as I would have it be for her,
as it is with her.
