make me chaste

tonight of all nights

i sit inside myself
wondering, pondering
considering the rights
of any with a mind for theft

i think of those
whose pondered prose
enamored with gleaming eye
does echo faint
the gleaming restraint
of not today… don’t die

deep inside I feel the pain
knowing not
from whence it came
shadowed in the
breathless calm of
silent tears and shame

i look to you for
passion clear and
a presence of love forlorn
with ambiance of
cherished tears free
of hate and scorn

yet no embrace is
in my fate or in
my future haste
only dreams and
haunting schemes can
make me chaste

make me chaste
