My Love

My Love
by David August

I'd say I love you more than plants the sun
or fish the sea and drowning men the land,
but desperate need like that I need not have:
I simply, clearly, truly, calmly love.

My passion doesn't need a lack or pain;
it's good and strong, dissolving every wrong.
Unflinching, never needs to wage a war,
unyielding, doesn't need to hesitate.

No matter how you try to make my love
a twisted wreck of studied loss, of waste,
of sad and squandered opportunity
it isn't yours to ruin. My love, for you.

Denying refuge in your heart will not
destroy my love, just make me wish it did.
