But I'll Have Eyes for None But You

Thu, 01/23/2014 - 17:57 -- tag359

I'll send you my apologies now,

In letter form, so I can be

Oblivious. Instead I'll write my heart.

 

First, I will send one for my brooding spirit.

Many nights will you stay up worrying at my

Silence.

 

And for my selfish nature, which,

Really, is the root of all my evil.

I just hope you demand your way.

 

I will be a good mother to Jason, Anto(nia),

And Rosie, as I suggested, but we discussed,

Because I feel like it.

 

Hopefully that is more often than not.

Hopefully I can change for the better.

Hopefully your bottomless patience can hold out.

 

And then my words. I know they are

Powerful, yet I am most careless

With the ones I love the most.

 

So I'll send you my apologies now,

In letter form, because I know

A heart like yours should never be bound to me.

 

My selfshness shines through again

On this day of holy binding,

But I'll have eyes for none but you.
