It’s not always like this,
these times when she goes,
these times when she slips away
briefly, into her other-world,
these times when I do not see her beauty in the rose,
these times when she goes, away,
 .   .   .   .   it’s not always like this.

Sometimes, she creeps back inside me unobserved
when I’m feeling unprepared, undeserved,
when I see the sparkle of her eyes in starlight,
when I see her dark complexion in a moonless night,
when I see her lovely locks
draped over windswept hollyhocks,
.   .   .   .  sometimes, it’s like this.

Always it’s like this,
when my heart beats faster with aching and yearning,
when I shudder with impending disaster,
when it all comes together faster and faster,
when I sink, when I drown, 
spiralling down into her maelstrom,
.   .   .   .   always, it’s like this, 
                                    She comes.
