My virtues ebb and rise
but my sins remain perpetual!
So your conviction is virtuous
but my love is the sin!
I am a polygon
with infinite points on my edge
that fade into nothing
without the simple one at my heart!
You can see me, of course,
once the smoke of love recedes
and the fog of life subsides
but with a ceiling on my dreams
I’m negated instantaneously!
Though to see and know me are different
and each is too often antonymous
to the other one but if you still want
to know and belong in my universe,
define me with tautology and calculus!
