I was lost

when I met you on the road

to Larissa

the straight road between the cedars

 

You thought

I was a man of roads

and you loved me for being such a man

I was not such a man

 

I was lost

when I met you on the road

to Larissa

 

///

 

Whenever I happen to see you

I forget for a while

that I am ugly in my own eyes

for not winning you

 

I wanted you to choose me

over all the other men you know

    because I am destroyed

in their company

 

I have often prayed for you

like this

    Let me have her
