Fool's Lament

Gladly she came to me,      hopefully, trusting me.           asking for nothing                 of me in return. Offered her love to me,      shamelessly, selflessly,            giving her body and soul in their turn. I took them hungerily,      callously, carelessly,           not knowing, not feeling                 the love she had shown.   Ravished her love for me,       shamefully, selfishly,           plundering the treasures I sought to own. Sadly she's gone from me,      hastily, haughtily,            taking all pleasures                to leave me alone.   Now I sit hopelessly,       painfully, pitifully,            tearfully pining for love that has flown.
