What plague has flecked my vein?
Affliction smirking to beguile,
A curse to entertain!
No contest dear my mind is sure,
Your gorgeous grin respite,
Haunted not my dreams endure,
No thoughts of you tonight.
Sickly sweet it radiates,
That laugh it screams adore,
Admitting this relentless fate,
… I couldn’t want you more.

Though the obstacles abound,
In you my heart's been found.
Though we stand on distant ground,
I will sail the oceans 'round.
Though I've lived a troubled lot,

But I'm bound to virtuous fare.
This consummate affair,
Should not cap or coax a care.
Though I've clumsily misstepped,
And shown you pain I've kept.
This gene in me expressed,
Though the genius must be stressed,
As the green° in us fares best,
While the night provides just rest.
So it's true I'm sure you've heard,
Of this dark and somber word.
But now darkened skies have cleared,
These trials, pray they've veered.
Older now I've grown,
To reap what I have sown.
What a toil it was to hone,
Like the blood drained from a stone°.
The price I paid for "talent",
More ephemeral than gallant.
A wayward train of thought,
When the dreamcatcher works not.
A stricken science taught,
