Moth's Love - Poem by Nero CaroZiv
You have loved me one whole day
A sweet short summer dream season
Tomorrow when you leave, what will you say?
What will be your reason?
Will you then antedate our love’s vow?
Or say in disdain
That our love was in vain
And now we are no longer those persons who we were?
Or that oath made in reverential fear
Of love, by love own wrath may be foreswear?
You have loved me whole life of a moth
To abandon me to throw me into a dungeon of loath
Was it me? Was you?
Can anything be done or undo?
Or as true death does true marriage untie
So lovers knots be by time unchained unloose?
Or is it your own mortal end fear to justify
Having your course and your purpose change
Leaving me out of your circle and your chance
You have no way but falsehood to be true
Vain lunatic ways
Gaudy wanton thoughts with little substance to pay
Against these skeptic thoughts I could
Dispute and refute if I would
But I shall abstain to do
For tomorrow I may think so too
