Love's Excesses

When i say, my Love
That your fire warms me
keep one eye on the flame
Or it may entirely consume me

When i say, My Darling
in your love i'm a joyful bather
watch the swell of the water
Or drown i will, sooner or later

When I say, My Lover
So delectable do i find you.
Be like the public ditribution system
Or I may bloat and blue

But when I say I love you
Immediately kill you senses
Or you will come to the above ends
Of which i have just spoken

For I Lack the grace and prudence
to play and regulate those games
that seem central to love's lifetime
and ensure a safe passage through ours
