I sensed your arduous gaze upon me fixed
It burnt me through. I beg of you: relent.
To love your world entire you have risked,
But why did not you ask what it all meant?
Can you not see how deeply I am hurt
And suffer silent, saddened and despised.
What vows, what promises did you assert
Would leave my universe uncompromised?
This sad reality you do not see
That doom was all thy pity’s recompense.
Absconded cosmic realms in your flee,
But yours is lust, its fire too intense.
You knew my fate is to another chained.
How to break free I do not wish to know.
Your jealous pleas have left me anguished, pained,
Dreading the hour when again you’ll show.
I wish you were less proud in pursuit,
Abandon this resolve to break my will.
What would you do if I did follow suit?
Can you be certain you would love me still?
You ask too much of me. Can’t leave behind
My life entire for your sake alone
I cannot guess at what you have in mind,
But I’m no toy for you to take and own
Then fling aside when sated in your play
Without any risk of a reprove.
This need of you I choose not to obey,
And from my sight temptation will remove.
