As if one moment passed and now there is no more
The time is closing quickly like a slowly shutting door
All the words are wasted and all the flights of fancy
I am huddled in a corner in a world grown chancy
He laughs at me from over there, the fiendish ruler fair
He laugh at my affair with Him and fills me with despair
He tells me who I really am when hiding he is not
I hate Love whom I so love: my soul already bought
Millions of fools he whippes along in velvet shackles held
How many towers of virtue has he swept along and felled?
No matter how I try to play to beat him at his game…
In the end he always wins…and it ends up the same…
Please love me Love! I beg of you! Please mock me no longer!
I have spent a life time trying to make our love grow stronger!
Yet there he sits in heartless glory watching me grow old
Laughing from his fiery eyes at the bleeding heart I sold.
He chained me as a child, he used me as a maid,
He beat the woman I became , he then, my heart, betrayed
He paraded his favourites before my weeping face,
He let me know exactly where I should find my place….
He taught me to be hard and filled with disbelief
He taught me, without beauty, your world has only grief
And every word a man might say to me that sounds so sweet
He laughs , shows me reality, and leaves me incomplete
And so I worship at his feet; the only life I’ve known
I reap the sad reality of all the seeds I’ve sown
And hope that in some other day, some other life beyond
I will be his Queen in a heart finally grown fond
