Garbled Love

What do I feel for you?
Is it Love or Lust?
Is it Infatuation or my Imagination?
Tell me, my treasure, for I am lost already

You alone can interpret your feelings
I’ve always experienced lust
For Love? I know nothing of it
Infatuation, I think, combines both

You are the object of my fantasy,
My model of a Lady,
The flower of my soul,
I adore your beauty

Your words betray you
You are an Adonis and an Orator
You sing better than the morning birds
I am defenseless before your vocal arrows

We are both victims of weapons
We’ve been wounded and seduced
What we share is overwhelming
Let us lick our wounds with joy.
