Damn You, Eve

Mourn my loss of innocence; the Queen of 
Love, and I her prince. Dance, we dance, all 
the way to Heaven- born of grief, and the 
things I have written...And dare I ask, or 
merely inquire, on who doth Love me, and who 
is a liar? Just say my name, old curse of 
shame, cloaked in dark, and murky colors 
No skies to fly, no seas to sail, no land on 
which to keep my Lovers
All too silent, this lonely night;
No choice to choose, no grounds to fight 
These pleading words, and Fools in herds-
marching to the Ends of the Earth 
People I loath, and you were told: I do wish 
Eve hadn't given birth...

    If Adam could talk....interesting piece. It flows so well but the blame ..oh the blame.... yet I detect a hint of his own regret, deep in the lines. Is this where our nostalgia for gardens began? SuZ

    This poem has so much depth in it..Its as if blaming Eve for our existence.To be born out of grief and face the loniliness of nights..yet nights won t all be lonely..nor days too cold..and grief will birth its joy..that is every human breathing on this milky way..Excellent rhyme

    This is an older piece and decided to leave it the way I originally wrote it; it adds a little variety I think. Thanks, JM! :)

    Thought provoking and the source of many quarrels through the years... Adam told God Almighty, "It was this woman you gave me..... She made me do it" (paraphrased)....I look at that as the first 'copout' --- There's blame enough to go around..... Nice write, sweetheart.... Jake

    Hey, Archaic, it reminds me so sweet souvenirs! My son,, when he was a little boy, used to weep and say really angrily "I hate Adam and Eve!" whenever he had to come to me because he disobeyed and wanted to apologize! And he was so sad and so unhappy to do wrong! (He had learned from sunday school that we inherited sin from the originating couple! Couldn't they keep quiet!!!!) Fortunately, he grew up learning the whole story...
