I can make you as weak as water -

At the same time awesomely strong.

Fireflies of desire dance with green fire

Burning away caution and pride-

Bur I do not want your future hate

For the sake of present love.

I know you are honorable, strong-willed -

And so this burning madness would bring


Silent and intense, I turn and walk away,


Magic ebbs . Weariness envelopes.

My heart is suddenly cold and old.
