To a Coy Madame

You, the image of perfection,
That I wanted to adore,
Until I saw reality
Which causes me to abhor1

5

The perfection that you appeared
To have mastered in each form.
But that was just an illusion,
Like the heart I thought was warm.

How I curse my misperception,
10

For truly did you deceive,
Giving me the wrong impression
By causing me to believe

That there could be a life form with
Higher planes and trains of thought.
15
Now I've sacrificed everything
For a trifling thing of naught2.

Long before I bought this store to
Have plenty of time with you,
And subsequently burned it down

20
Just to show that we are through,

You should have told me that you were
Plastic and not acting coy3.
All this time I thought you flirted,

1 abhor: hate, despise
2 naught: nothing
3 coy: shy, flirtatious
