What usury!

Today I bartered yesterday's innocence in trust of tomorrow's payment
Supine before you, heart and soul protesting the very intent
Appeasing their ache with your promissory note, I quelled their desire
But you have not paid!
Your empty words were substitute for the heart's fixed seal
What usury!
Would that I know what you now sought...eternally before you it would be laid
Ah, but to no avail! For the heart is not to be compelled
And so...I continue to seek the one to assume your unatoned debt
