If You But Knew!
If you but knew how much i loved you!
You would have forsaken the whole world for me.
Which paradise of the worlds you bequeathed in place of my love?
To which Eden of hopes the SERPENT tricked you?
Oh, the evenings we shared in the candle light.
The verses you scribbled while hot coffees we had.
The dawns we kissed And the sunsets we gazed together until-
The last rays of twilight disappeared into your bosom and beyond.
Lightening, flashes rain: THE STORM!
Where have you gone in the darkness alone?
WHAT DO YOU SEEK FOR?
Give me the wine your love back
If not, pour me a bowl of poison
I want to bathe in it a life and more and more.
