It Won’t Do

By Damien Knight 

I want to answer, to remind, to repeat
Fear saying something: "eyes once honey sweet."
Once more misreads and misunderstands
Knows not the agony of this love lorn man
The agony of seeking her long dark hair
Her eyes like emeralds staring there
Dreams I know won't come to pass
I post of loves that didn't last 
Here you are and say such things
No wonder I see her eyes always in dreams
I have never met her, nor have I you
I am not him, it's not denial its true
