My shining knight, I have seen you last night.
Solemnly you smiled, thus, I must forgive.
Again, you have taken my heart for flight.
In one brief moment, you let me believe.
My knight, once you were a beloved friend.
How I have laughed with you wholeheartedly.
Alas, something vile, within you a fiend!
My knight, you have crushed my soul wickedly.
I have given you my admiration,
as you gave me your beautiful promise.
Yet, my great misfortune - your deception.
My dashing knight, let my love gone demise.
For I have forgotten you like a dream,
Your words, discarded in a loathsome stream.
Every maiden’s nightmare.
