I WOULD, I DO

 

If I could depict the substance of my heart,
this mass of space (this massive room!)
would brand a masterpiece of perfect art.

If I could write,
the composition would neither start nor end:
the meaning lost on tongues of lovers.
Yet, spoken soft or written proud
your name would glow its fame out loud;
expression shining strong and sound.

If I could activate emotion,
unhindered,
I would sway in craze;
but movement knows not this commotion.
Impeded,
but just,
with solitary devotion,
I mind the thoughts.
In silence I thrill.

I love you still.
