Lady Zuleika… fairer than fair…

Wracked with guilt, lust & despair.

The lover lost, beyond her will.

Her heart burned white… she loved him still.

 

Wracked with guilt, lust & despair,

She became blind & struggled for air…

Her heart burned white, she loved him still.

This love she had, she knew, could kill.

 

She became blind and struggled for air…

Beseeched her god, who was not there.

This love she had, she knew, could kill…

Her soul had been put through the mill.

 

Beseeched her god, who was not there!

Searching for One who did always care…

Her soul had been put through the mill.

She found a love, much greater still.
