I quivered. I flared up, and then was extinguished.
I shook. I had made a proposal - but late,
Too late. I was scared, and she had refused me.
I pity her tears, am more blessed than a saint.

Love's Trinity

But burn as closely fused as fuel, heat, and flame.

Don't seem the sort of man, do I, as might be the pal of kings?
