disappoint meant

afraid you'd disappoint me--is that a compliment or a lack of faith?
i should have told you how impossible!
how just fingertips blushed down your cheek would close chasms for me
but i couldn't find words up on this dizzy pedestal/turned/gallows
where beautiful possibilities swing so unnecessarily
