Wince com'est thou, fairest Mania?
I don't recall your golden wings
Affixing to my arms
But I recognize the stars as they grow near;
Their brightness and swirling colors
Are hopelessly alluring;
Yet as I near them your wings fall off,
And back I plunge, unrequited, to
The dark, cold, and lonely moon.
I can't keep this up,
You know that, don't you?
To love you, I must plunge as deep
As you soar high, which only
Costs me my mind.
