He Says

No flows,

No rose,

No dare-I-suppose,

I assuage your heart,

Til the tenderness goes.

 

No kiss,

No rock,

No dare-I-unlock,

The vulnerability inherent

In this novela plot.

 

No chance,

No plea,

No lovesick thief,

Would make me do more to cause you injury.

 

No more,  no more he said I’m putting forth my hand,

Clean up and recovery from the damage of the last man.

You are worthy,

especially in this emotional quicksand

to feel

beautiful.
