6. The lover

He is not ridiculous.
He only suffers.
He can not reach her,
so he can not trust her,
so he suffers the more,
being persecuted by her memory
which torments him worse
than any shrew could do.
Is he then a self-tormentor,
or is she tormenting him?
The dilemma is that both are innocent,
which makes their love the worse for both.
