English: Alessandro Longhi (1733-1813) portrait of Giacomo Casanova, found at, in public domain (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

The flights of fancy
From your eyes
Flirtatious and intense
Then cool attention
Mimics ice
As fire of passion relents

These games you play
So intricate
Like chess, a structured strategy
Are but your cards
Used to relate
To delve within the heart of me

Oh Casanova
You may cry
Imprisoned or beleaguered be
Yet in your arms
We all will lie
Turn infamy to history
