Off With His Heart!

Burning deep inside me, is a question I need to ask
Revealing what's beneath the skin, behind this impassive mask
A question that has long lingered in memory cast in doubt
A feeling I admit, I nor whisper nor I shout
But it has overwhelmed me, to the point of no return
Because deep down inside me, this question persists to burn
I feel it rising silently, I feel in my throat
There is no cure for this feeling, no common antidote
"Pray tell us, Sir, for you rambled like a fiend"
My question is of a love that sends me to the guillotine
"Pray tell us, Sir, which Dear Lady pens this strife?"
My Dear Sir, my kind Dear Sir, that Lady is your wife.
