Though, But.

Though
This is one way.
It is conversation.
But,
Your inner voice will begin to talk
As you read.

Do it out loud if possible.
This will work
Today me, tomorrow you.
A am a Doctor,
So this will work.

Though
I wish
You would be in my scene,
But,
You are part of the red dream.
I count you among my ripples
So you are to be held close.

Though
I understand that,
As I let go
You move away from me,
But
I let go
Like a leap from a bridge.

Though
The very oxygen of love
Is understanding.
But,
Are you beginning to understand?
Do you understand?

Though
You are
The love of my life,
But,
How mad is this?
You drive me sad.
