Melodramatics: Master, have I ever been inherent?

Theatrical, without exception, you were!
Natural, you have not been!
Quiet, you are not!
Passionate, you will continuously be!

To melodramatics I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like romance
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using performance

I am in search of more,
     trying to sing your praise!
It's you I very much adore,
     lacking in so many ways.

Can I pass a metre, disclosed so people might see
Fully charming innuendos, proudly informing, and oh but bestowed free?
Tender or gentle feel all too apparent. But is squashy?
Emotional, mushy? - or delicate, romantic? Darn! I deserted squishy!
I wonder sensitive and similarly forgiving, but plainly ought I
- found concepts so - summaries crafted with computers spry?

So smart that dude from Pinecraft.
