empty cup

She said
I would never know
How to love her
But that wasn't really true
I can love anyone
With most things I am unsure
With anything but love
My view remains askew
So like an ocean tide
Without a shore
Loves remains unfulfilled 
So I told her, slowly, deliberately
I am able but you aren't willing
For union two must agree
Or it will be one
Serving and filling
The cup of the other
Asking for more
Without response
Without intimacy
My cup is empty
However much
I am willing to pour
