PARTED, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: She wrapped her soul in a lace of lies
Last Line: I'll swear that she's no martyr.
Subject(s): Absence; Separation; Isolation


SHE wrapped her soul in a lace of lies,
With a prime deceit to pin it;
And I thought I was gaining a fearsome prize,
So I staked my soul to win it.

We wed and parted on her complaint,
And both were a bit of barter,
Tho' I'll confess that I'm no saint,
I'll swear that she's no martyr.
