Definitions will spawn in a new window (Wordnet):

Not so, damn us.
unknown

Lost in the circular logic of
 1
                                       crying shame
 2
Hot shivers,
 3
                  doubt that this will never be the same.
 4
 
                     The way your hair falls
 5
                           after a gust of wind.
 6
                                    
 7
Or the crazy wildness, sinking depth,
 8
underneath
 9
                 the cherry red apples of heaven.
 10
 
                             Hey, I heard you whispering
 11
          (nymphs have fattened ears).
 12
              
 13
Now, I never underestimated,
 14
I could have, all these years.
 15
                        
 16
For the lack of better judgement,
 17
or the blame of aching feet,
 18
                                        
 19
                                          Love is worth
 20
                        the consequence
 21
                                          Your gaze is worth
 22
                        the meet.
 23
 
I should have turned a page
 24
    or two
 25
                                    but I left it up to the wind
 26
                                    the crazy sinking wildness
 27
the gust of the illogic grin.
