Dear, dear – my heart does create

An affection for you I can't translate

It's as if my fondness was innate

My love for you needs to wait

But how do I suppress emotions so great?

Every time I try, I hesitate

You threw the line and I took the bait

My love for you is a heavy weight

It pulls me up to heaven's gate

Then drops me down to a horrible state

Is it meant to intoxicate?

My love for you should be sedate

But oh! How cruel to have this fate!

To know your intentions way too late

I allow my feelings to know abate

My love for you has turned to hate
