Have I tried too hard?

Obsessed over how to keep your almond eyes

Locked on this mystery long enough to bestow

Distilled expressive justifications of a robust

Interest in an old and reliable rustic strength

Nothing I have pressed so far has drained the

Gorge which keeps me away from your thoughts


On weekdays, I try to draw closer to your smile because

New delights await us, when you don’t resist my touch
