The scarring of my heart proceeds apace.
Impassioned venom my words do relate.
Fantasies of love comprise my disgrace.
Loyalty lies with the self I do hate.
On ignorance will happiness depend.
Untold suffering welcomes my embrace.
For the love of my life I will contend.
In daydreams I see her angelic face.
Love engulfs the heart in winding despair.
Betrayal of self is highest treason.
For one thing in life do I truly care.
I reached out for love against all reason.
Unwarranted hope, hate cannot destroy.
For her, wicked spite does part like a veil.
Forgiveness I've learned to rightly employ.
Here begins, not ends, my hardest travail.
Now and forever, my heart hears ~one voice~.
