A Mad Dervish Dance

I knelt before her and was condemned.
I deified her and was ridiculed.
I loved her and was found lacking.
I forgave her and was found weak.
Which is insane for attempting
This mad dervish dance that will
bring only pain and bitter sinew
that we will gnaw in angry challenge
to the other’s very existence?
