Blind love

we all so desperately want...

Let me love

you as

I could,

Not as you will

or as I need to.

For love,

to linger,

have to be free,

and what

you want for

is not me.

You may

love me

as you will,

but I should

spurn you,

as I need to.

For although


is a desire

that's loose,

once made,

it approach

that you love me.

Only you?

I would possibly love,

or 3 or 4.

As would possibly you.

For love

will ever have

its way,

regardless what

we do

or say.

Those who say

that they love 

love handiest

one - themselves.

For you

Confuse it

with love,

whose way

Is willed,


what you assert.
