46. Thieves

O sweet thief in my heart,
Do steal away not only
What I have, but also
What I am.
From now I shall have
Only one need:
  You, only you.

O swift thief of the world around
Who came to rob me,
Don’t act like a fool.
Don’t empty
My venom-cup.
Your life of light shall die
  Before it begins.
