Bitter as gall and wormwood
Is the taste of your lips to me.
Cold are your eyes as the ice winds,
That winter drags in from the sea.

Lusterless, dull and betraying
Is your hair, that was one of your glories.
How inane are the words that you utter
Since I have lost faith in your stories.

And the strange and magic power
That was the most potent of the charms
That your body held to enslave me,
Now repels, turns away my arms.

Sweet, since our spark of love has died,
It is queer how your faults are magnified.
