I reject your reality and substitute my own.

Plus or minus a few, I've had to go through many a soul to find you.
I've gone here and there, searching for one compatible.
I failed, always, and have been told to keep climbing that ladder.
I mocked them, for they knew not my intentions.
I pursued freely and wildly with all lack of inhibition.
I toiled. I follied. I partook in many a chase.
I pranced here and there, layed my heart to waste.
I planted my seed (of discord none the less).
I was forced (upon capture) my sins to confess.
Many'a thing I said i did (I didn't).
I tried to expel the truth (but they wouldn't hear it).
Following my obloquys I was thoroughly disbanded.
Never in history has someone been so reprimanded.
I wandered my way, no sensible direction.
At all cost i managed to avoid detection.
I ventured on, keeping watchful eye (to wherever you may lay).
Keeping my ear tuned (for whatever you may say).
I wrote a thousand pretty words and sang a thousand songs.
I did my best (always chin up) to muster along.
At last I found you, my love! But not where I had thought.
Only then did I soak in the sorrows and pain my squanderings brought.
Engraved upon a simple stone I read your lovely name.
Though I shant pronounce it now (I don't want to bare the shame).
I saw then that you waited for me, through the tribulations and the doubt.
Only in your grave do I hear the profundity of your shouts.
So I shall sit here, beside your bed, your permanent description.
Until I, too, feel the pang of such a terrible conviction.
