Issue #4

ORIGINAL SIN

Sweet
Fruit
Blameless
For man's fall
Bible does not show
The lies of Adam - tears of Eve



YOUR BEAUTY

Heart
Beat
Pounding
Loverís eye
Beholds your beauty
Making pale the summer sunset



INNER VOICES

Lust
Greed
Desire
Temptations
From inner voices
Silenced by the cicada song



ON EQUINOX EVE

Spring
Fall
Apposed
Pole to pole
On equinox eve
Summer passed from south to north

Birds
Fly
Migrate
With the sun
My task for tonight
To lay and watch nature unfold



TEARS OF JOY

Here
Once
We lay
Sweet passion
I feel for your warmth
I kiss your lips that are not here

Blood bursts from my heart's busted dam
Flooding my desire
Tears of joy
I wait
For
You

Oh
Love
True love
In torment
Upon your return
I lay here still alone and dream
