Mistress

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.
