A Faded Romantic's Notebook

You have ruined

my box of words.

None of them

are good enough.

None of them

are adequate.

None of them

can do you justice.

My nouns

are neutered,

my adjectives

are absent,

my verbs

are without value.

I have run out

of metaphors


and superlatives.

You have ruined

my box of words.

How can I

describe you now?
