Please

Please

A Poem by Berto

Please.
Forgive my cowardice.


I want to admit it.
To myself and to you.
I want to shout exuberantly.
But I am mute.

I only know a pattern of disappointment. 

Trust abandons me.


I tried, in a detour, to allude to my sentiments. 

a hopeless attempt to elicit your devotion.
And I offended you.
As all half-hearted efforts rightly must.


But recently, your eyes have changed. Their shape - It's peaceful.
I no longer incite rage within your iris.


If.
you have to tell me. 

Please.


I can't chase as you as I should,
nor as you deserve.

My swagger trips upon itself the moment our eyes meet.

I am disheveled. 

Humbled. 

No one has loved me. 

Perhaps no one should.

But I want you to.
