I sailed unaware into
the ocean currents
of her life:
and

smitten, I
desired to ride

them with her;
somewhere
along
the ocean ways, a

seed of love

planted in the soil of
my heart had taken root
and grew--only to perish
like

a young hope

that's fleeting:
though I loved her,
she

still wounded
me

like a careless
knife.

In spite of
this and myself,
I looked

for encouragement
in her stare;
and

at the outlines
of her graceful
form

I did wonder:
she was

indeed

a Helen of Troy, a prize,
on whose loveliness
I

so richly gorged!

But never was
a lonely man
more wretched
than

I was,

as she could
not return my
affections

with equal measure of feeling.

I would be more
glad had she been
unwedded to another,
and

could easily be within
my desirous
and
jealous

orbit!

In time, I
never

saw
her again;

and love, or the
appearance of it--like
an aborted

fetus

flushed down the
toilet--died

with her parting
as well!
