How do I say 'I miss you' so that you may grasp it?
That I cannot and won't be able to;
That the end of the cosmos will be touched before you will
Is an understatement to this implausibility
How do I find ways and words to assist your comprehension?
That I can and will always be able to
But that it would take farther than forever
Is the only hyperbole credible
How do I word 'I miss you' and run your way
When I understand I cannot and will, at no time, be able to?
And the cosmos has an end but never doesn't
When I find the way to say, "I'm finally over you..."
Explication: The poem describes a love that transcends language. The way in which feelings should be expressed seems impossible and the speaker addresses this. The use of ideas such as 'cosmos' (the universe) and 'never' (read as a noun) are hyperboles for the enormity of love. Thus, the message: the universe will have an ending and non-existance or imagination will always thrive, before words could possibly make sense of the speaker's emotions.
