Out of Earshot

i will let it go when i can.
but honey, don’t you understand
no magic rub can erase this;
     it’s permanent.
i know not its name but i can guess.
but if you wish me not to say,
i will honor your request.
                         (am i out of earshot?)
cos i can’t resist
 i’m so fullof,
it is fullof
          ( i t i s f u l l o f . . . )
i don’t want to whisper.
honey, let me profess this.
you heard me say it:

Though if you wish me not to feel,
then, honey, I can only try not to show.
But realize no muffler can
               silence my heart.
