Accessory

Since their early childhoods
They saw each other grow up
Into the persons they are today
And ever since she knew him
She besotted him
Clandestinely
For nor he ever did
Neither shall he ever know

Philandered with other damsels he
And sought succour in her 
If one ever disparaged him
Never could he have conjectured
That she who stood by him
Got her heart slivered
Each time he admired someone else.
And ever since she knew him
She besotted him
Clandestinely
For nor he ever did
Neither shall he ever know

Their good and bad
Well versed to both
Their battles
Familiar to both
But he always adored someone else
And ever since she knew him
She besotted him
Clandestinely
For nor he ever did
Neither shall he ever know

Someday
She too shall learn
To be smitten by someone else
And love him more than anything
But that lad
Who she grew up with
Shall monopolize a personal space
Eternally in her essence
And ever since she knew him
She besotted him
Clandestinely
For nor he ever did
Neither shall he ever know
