To withholds I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like detains
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using retains

I have been seaching ever more,
     hoping again to sing your praise.
For words, I very much adore,
     lacking me in several ways.

Can I show a verse, delivered so people might see
Newly defining innuendos, somehow educating, and oh but revealed free?
Covers or waives look all too apparent. But is detains?
Preserves, stops? - or refrains, protects? Damn! I excluded retains!
I reckon obstructs and certainly conserves, but happily ought I
- given meanings oh - summaries crafted with computers spry?
