Dignity
© by Kthulah

Of course I love you! Is that not clear as day?
I just don't feel that love is stable ground
On which to base the dream of a pursuit
The climax being but a haughty laugh.

So let me love you gently from afar
Without a need to selfishly acquire
Without convincing you what I am worth
For knowing mine already is enough.

It is a given that if you were mine
That I would treat you better than the rest
But men, appreciation do not fire
It is infatuation that they crave.

So though I love you more than dignity
My dignity preserved is more than naught.
