Head of gold,
Eyes as bright,
To quench my ego,
Bereave me of pride.
Flare up the envy of my blood;Sit as my heart’s sovereign,
Make me content with wisdom broth,
Hold candlelight to my pain.
Though liquor may gleam,
Foods fill me to brim,
All leave me melancholic,
Love drunk; alcoholic.
Enliven this heart, behold; a request!
Lest I melt in fervor, knight me with this quest!
Contain this great sorrow; devour my regret,
Lest I echo as hollow; collapse in neglect.
Engulf me in this alchemy,
Close up scarred thoughts engraved in me,
Should mortal man enslave this prowess,
Become my pride, I’ll make you goddess!
