Mercy, I beg forgiveness,

For loving you too deeply,

For being so defenceless,

Guarding my heart so feebly.

I chased your heart recklessly

So I did this to myself,

But you can’t go blamelessly,

Just leave me upon a-shelf.

True, I loved you heart-and-soul,

I opened my heart gladly,

But you feared to lose-control,

Now all I ask is mercy.
