He stalks me every day, without respite;
There is no place to hide from his sight.
We have been lovers for long, I agree;
But the affair’s got to stop, he needs to see.
Incapable of resisting his charms, I am weak;
My frail resolve has never been that strong.
Snared by all that is forbidden, beset in his web,
I give into his seduction, enamored and beguiled.
Sinking into the oblivion of the oft-repeated sin,
We let the world and time pass us by; remorseless.
The world continues to mock me and calls me names,
“The sloth’s mistress” is the title on the badge of infamy, I bear.
