Brigandage

Drag me to the hallow chambers of his lordship,

To the Snares and nest of this worship.

Charge me without the habeas corpus,

Let me remain in remand till allocutus.

I am an accessory yet a victim,

I am an accessory and a victim to the same crime. 

Charge me for brigandage pay no mind to the clime.

Five persons have robbed me with arms,

These five persons my lord I know like my palm, 

Bickering, fear, sloth, wrath, lechery, 

They all reside in me, a team we are.

I am guilty of aiding and abetting with stern glare,

These things that robs me of life's fortune in me gauged,

I am the sixth man of this five - man brigandage,

I am an accessory and a victim to a single crime.

Love held in hands,
Opens eyes to  hope in the skies;
Now I see light.

The moon witness' us,
At the blouse of tensed sunset,
Love, the name we bare.

And crazy they went
Vows and promises they put on head
14/2 marks their death

Gently receding
Beneath the horizon 
Fom whence she did rise

In the hallow of your beauty my heart dwelled, I sight the beams, i smell the charms of your overwhelming perfume, the power of my enduring heart fails me; then I plight to love you forever!

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
