Eros to Psyche

by March 19, 2010 0 comments

Psyche my other self
I stumbled
pricked by my own arrow.

Psyche your beauty

exceeds the stars
such beauty stunned me,

and I fell.

Psyche with dawn
I must leave you

seek me not or my face look upon.

Psyche, you held

the lamp high.
You betrayed me.
In shocked delight at? the sight
you fell and pricked your self.
You betrayed love,
as all lovers must do.
Now I must leave you.

Psyche your audacious beauty
made Aphrodite jealous.
I was sent to bring punishment upon you.
I stumbled and fell,

pricked by my own arrow.

Psyche you listened to them,
Now a darkness separates us.
The lamp you held high,
so you in frightening

solitude must? go,

You have betrayed love,
as all lovers must.
Look to the ants, the bees, the water-reeds
and find yourself, me,
in the darkness.

Psyche,

Mistrust and suspicion

come between us.
I gave you myself,?

only my face
I asked you not to see.

I did not ask for much.
You have betrayed me
as all lovers must.
Now my nostalgic heart

must depart from you.
Look for yourself, me,

in the darkness.

In the darkness,

look and bring back
one pot of Persephone’s beauty cream.
look for your self, for me,
In the darkness,

Psyche.

Is love not a darkness,

that takes the self from the self?
you have betrayed love
as all lovers must.

Look for yourself, me,

in the darkness that is love,
and you shall find me
once again in truth and love,

When all hope has gone,

look for yourself, me,
in the darkness and find me.
When you have given up on love,
life,
look into the void and find yourself, me.

Love betrays us all,
or do? we betray love?
your beauty is the sun
to me.

Is love not a darkness,
Psyche?
We surrender to love
and lose ourselves to each other.
such darkness is binding,
blinding.
We open our eyes to find self
and it is gone.
I must leave you now,

Psyche.
