Love Again

My fault, my fault, my grievous fault,

Here again bitten by the bug,

Feelings first met at the great gates,

to the complex world of adults,


Feelings not within reach,
Eloping my grasp and wish,
But finding me caged within,
No other walls but its,

And then I was wont to think,
These ushers are for the gates,
But finding them all about us,
In them we seem to sink,

Behold you fair and love,
you I want to have,
But no matter how hard I try,
Would hunger till you are mine,

Love so cruel thou art,
To desire and not to have,
to talk and yet not tell,
to feel and still not well,

not knowing my true desires,
I am scared of losing,
My pride before me,
I am only left with self,

My eyes for now craves to see,
The joyful intimacies,
