The Confederates of Evil

Long ago, upon one grey and bleak November
That I shall forevermore remember,
I’d heard that my beautiful belov’d was untrue;
Then the rages of despair and anguish flew
Like ravenous birds throughout my soul.

O’ she was my companion, and how I lov’d her,
But she had found dear another did I discover;
Then came the primal forces of upheaval,
And as confederates of evil,
Rose from the darkness within my soul.

My thoughts were of her; yet my mind had twist’d,
Then rose the wrath from within as she resist’d;
Thus my resentment and my ferocity grew
And with the rages of despair and anguish flew
Like ravenous birds throughout my soul.

Her absence is an unbearable demon upon my mind,
But ‘twas her infidelity that struck me blind;
Then came forth the primal forces of upheaval,
And as confederates of evil,
Rose from the darkness within my soul.

My regrets reach far ahead, for she is forever sleeping;
Thus the haunting thereof is indeed my keeping,
And when I heard that my beloved had not been untrue;
Then once more the rages of despair and anguish flew
Like ravenous birds throughout my soul.
