Are They Wed?


Within the breathing walls of Lovers' Creed

Exists an entity best forgotten

Because, in thought and often still in deed

It is the worst of the misbegotten.

Yet trying to ignore it, though intent,

Won't give satisfaction to the lover

For it becomes evermore insistent

On coming to the fore. There's no cover!

For where there's love there also may be hate

As deep emotions parallel, it's said.

What can one do if this is then innate?

Is one to the other thus truly wed?

Oh, get thee hence, cruel god of jealousy!

You'll not damage this love - that's heresy!
