A tale of love, lies, jealousy, and loss as seen through the eyes of a delusional lover.
Vast as oceans seemed, the span
Of distance that between us ran;
Though mere inches did separate,
One look assures; a glance betrays.
No walls of concrete before us stood,
But barriers of gaze beneath the hood.
Perhaps no more than fancy this,
Potent as the serpent’s hiss;
Perhaps your eyes beneath the veil,
No hearts more than mine assail.
Yet your wandering gaze inspires,
Within me, the heat of unknown fires;
What venom thus, the mind infects,
What taint sullies heart’s innocence?
What power a flickering iris holds,
What mystic spells, what charms untold?
That which to build did years exhaust,
In a moment’s fluttering gaze was lost.
