Before The Lines - Poem by Robert J Meyer

Can there be any doubt?
You have overcome me.
No other stands before you.
This is consuming me.
Here is where I will stand.
I am before you,
A poor supplicant.

Restore me to myself
Or I will be lost in you.
Such is my plight -
Annihilation in your eyes,
The sweet little death we shared -
Inevitable and wonderful.

    I'll take a flier and think I understand this. If I do. Then this is a rather simple
    expression of consuming love. If there is such a thing. I can't imagine a more restrained plea emotionally accompanied by a dynamic plea intellectually. I
    hope this lover reads National Geographic and not Cosmo. Whatever she reads,
    this desperate lover needs Byron. To read, not write. He can already do that.
