Evil Thoughts

It is evil to wish upon somebody hurt in order to make yourself happier;
And yet I do it nonetheless.
I watch you love her from the distance,
And my jealousy rises so high I must leave,
And do more than unnatural things in order to prevent the evil thoughts from becoming more.
In my hand I hold a doubled-edged sword and though I am constantly at battle with myself,
So long my thoughts stay less than verbal, I maneuver the other end away from my merciless lover.
I will continue this trend until the sword finally takes away my last breath, all knowing that though my thoughts were evil;
I protected you from a more disastrous fate.

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
