Forever, together, we jittered,
Under many constellations, obscured.
Could my prospects remain always bright?
Kings! Must they only vanquish without fight?
Your air as pure as my quiet gaze,
Or could dusky sight be telling lies?
Under strange guise of lullabies,
Refrains, impure, echoed my maze.
Could you be hiding same corruption?
Under thee Queen, vile jester trick?
Never shall I pronounce dip nor stick!
To keep you loving, muted affection.
Hovering amidst what should and must,
As twisted love and unsoiled lust
Rampage at me, and with foul logic,
Desires remain, lost in acrostic.
