Why Could I Not?

Why Could I Not?

Why could I not tell you
I love you as flowers love the rain
as the stars love the night sky
that you are like a well fit boot to me.

You meshed into my life and
it just made simple sense
beckoning the goodness I have stored
for these, my rainy days, my days
without sun or stars or boots.

Then why was it so hard for me to look at you
as if looking at you would cause me to
melt into an ocean of pity for not being
good enough to share your grace.

This my last reply to your endless questions
I am sure you ask only out of concern
for another human being
you can not truly care for me as your
love was washed away with night tides.

I will give you a flower, a rare, exotic flower
as a semblage to the things I could not speak
and I will cover it with my tears, under night sky
gazing at stars, in my boots - as you were all these.

Light follows the Darkest of nights.
