The Artist’s Lament

A fool I was to pin my happiness on you.

When now I see you’ve been untrue.

Leaving me at times of dire need

My hapless whisperings, took no heed.

Where were you at the dead of night?

Those precious hours, at down, took flight:

Whilst I alone remain in sorry state

Longing for my ill matched mate.

A fool I was to pin my hopes on you

But now I see you’ve been untrue.

Beguiling me with your dazzling feeling.

Then from me, in the darkness stealing.

Where did you go? Which undeserving soul did you see?

Bestowing your ecstasy on them, not me.

A fool I was to give my self to you

As now, I see you’ve been untrue.

I ask of myself, Is it something I’ve done?

As I watch you, carelessly go and come.

Can I last yet another night?

When will Destiny and Time put this wrong to right?
