Having and Holding

This way of keeping you: it does me wrong.

It lessens me, in you: and it is no

Subtle device for love, nor any aim.

I cannot say how inexpert I feel,

Keeping this all for the sake of keeping you.

You’re only truly with me, when you run,

Or dance, escape from every dreariness.

So I cannot simply keep you, in this way,

And I cannot know just what to do with you.
