I should find your attention flattering.
There's certainly no denying your devotion.
However, whatever good intentions you have,
whatever you see when your eyes close ..
when your dreams invade, is not there for me.
It's unfortunate things are not otherwise.
Another time, different identities.
Chemistry.. bodies, composed of such varying ingredients
never meant to emulsify.
(Not ours, anyway.)
Were you to aim for friendship, you would not be disappointed.
You can't, however, expect to persuade someone into love.
Things would be simpler if you'd listen.
Everyone says love is blind,
but in my experience it's deaf.
But thanks for caring.
I care too.
In a different, but nonetheless genuine way.
