Could You Love Me

Could you love me for who I am?
Love me in pentameter iamb
And find it in your heart to care
For a Poet without a prayer,
With a heart measured by the gram

If I drew you a diagram
Of rise and fall of diaphragm
From breathing emotion like air,
Could you love me?

Tell me you don’t give a damn,
It doesn’t bother you a dram,
My missing teeth and thinning hair
Please, see beyond the clothes I wear,
As sure as Aries is the Ram,
Could you love me?
