You thought I could only really be free
if I was
free – in some way – of my art.
But what I really need in order to be free is the
to freely express my heart.
And whether you like it or not, dear C,
and whether this is something you can live with
the only darned thing that stops my old gentle soul from
giving up this curious fight
is the thought that one day
we might share wonderful kiss
we never shared that wonderful night.
