Devil's Advocate

You say to love one is to love them all?
Then I shall not have one but have them all!
For how can I who love them heart and soul,
Be joined to one? Shall I lose such control
That I shall foolishly discard my gift
To see into their hearts of sorrow, sift
Through the lies that are borrowed, thrifty
Cheap replica's of what is truly love?
Yet you would say that I am governed false,
That I am running for fear of further loss;
As a stag runs from hunter's bow. Coin toss
Do you label me, a charade of chance;
But why then does my sorrow make you dance?
