i'd prefer to remember summer

cold november rain
dark and early depressing
i remember sun bright and warm

there's someone of eye fire and feminine
loved lithe ripe
a laser of bright thought

and her man makes her ill with joy
intensity such happiness
how could i ever dare challenge

yet she in her feminine the feminine way
opportuned me her penchant for complication
i love too much to have dared acknowledge

now it's cold november's rain
beyond she's moved
yet i still compare them all

it's unpleasant difficult
my betrayal
but i must ride too

Ovid's "Remedia Amores" cures for love
a hard journey
but i can't be november forever
