A Show of Love










A declaration of my love –
As simple as three words.

To demonstrate,
I spend a lifetime in pursuit.

The weight of your perception
hangs heavily
for no coherent reason.

The longing to transmit my emotion
nags incessantly.

A love not as revealing
as a number;

Nor explained by a thousand adjectives;

Leaves me confined
to nothing more illustrious
than physical intimacy.
