cannot

i wanted
to write you a poem
one
where i
told the world
how much you mean to me
where i
expounded upon
your virtues
where i
shouted out my love
where i
gave in
to all the softer things

but
that isn’t the type of thing
you would want
need
or care for
just as i am not
the type of man
you would want
love
or care for

so i will not

even
if i cannot
make myself
stop thinking them
