The sport

The sport of fruitless infelicity
Captures my mind's ignorance-dream.
Be off, be off, O satisfied desires!
It is you that ruin my quest supreme.

I am the traveller, ignorant of Dawn;
Never, alack, have I tasted bliss.
Before my heart the dart of eyeless Night;
I am lost in the jaws of boundless Abyss.
