I Really Do Love You (The Lament of a Ditched Lover)


I really do love you
When my bitterness kindles
As I listen to your feigned riddles
Was it a false movement
Or a falsetto

I really do love you
When aridity steals my portion in tears
At the sight of your departing rear
That wry smile of yours
And the character of a journey on all fours

I really do love you
The ashiness
That possesses my memories
And stale thoughts
Like a 1943 snap shot
The clean goblets
And cherished wine
More cherished in the cellar
Than our goblets to a toast

I really do love you
When I stand in the mist
Pondering and wondering
Where ever did I let my emotions
Rage like wild erosions
Or wearing thin like a rabid dog
In a cold winter’s fog

I really do love you
The beguiled responses
And pretend placid smiles
Behind our vile embrace
And A questioning touch
Like a frost bite
On a winter morning

I really do love you
Your flagrant penchant for wealth
at the expense of our emotional health
Your corroding kiss
Like the juice of bile
On my hapless lips

I really do love you
Words really cannot express
As much as it does seem to impress
Our moments apart
Is Like blossoming flowers in the winter
And snowfall on a hot summer day

Do you not have the eyes to see
From my expressions, being at sea
Oh, Or is it lost for words
That I really do love you
I love just enough to love the more
After I forget you.
