How do I love thee?
Let me count the ways…
with an ever-adoring gaze –
in every despicable cliché –
by every road down which you have mislead –
with every syllable left unheard and unsaid –
with every single ounce of me
besides the brain inside my head –

I love thee almost completely,
but not just quite;
my logical side won’t let me,
always see things right;
just know that I love thee,
when you ask these things;
know it’s true I feel for you deeply,
so deeply it starts to sting.

    wonderful! Sometimes I adore the rational side of me, other days abhor it… but it has saved me more than once… perhaps you too? great work!
