Is it wrong to love like this?

Delusional; some might say

that at my age I can feel bliss and give the love I give away.

But what if this poet's love is as pure as light?

Reality's the cure as my dreams put up a fight.

 

I've been loving you for years and expecting so much more,

between poetry and tears, of you I'll never bore.

And though my poems may dwindle and my inspiration starve,

with you, it's easy to rekindle, your name I will go carve.

 

My love is not for vanity, my love is not for show,

and although my love's insanity; for you it'll always grow.

'Summer night', remember--that you're my one true muse,

and on this cold December, I wish that I had you.
