Obscured stood I, absconding the realm of dreams
Began my search, for neither messiah nor elf
Looked through my heart, into eyes umpteen
Probed for thy mirror, in hunt for myself.
Wandered the summits, skies that kiss
Touch they couldn't this heart's flight
Delved the deeps, profoundest abyss
Satiate they couldn't, this soul's delight.
Many an eye met, met only mine eyes
Free could none, me from my cage
Many an eye saw, saw only the guise
Retaliate could none, my own image.
At length heaven's heard, what prayeth my heart
The nights that wept, my tears they wiped
From Elysium to me, my Aeneas didst depart
To drench this heart ; the rose that dried.
He maketh us one, severred He didst send
Thy heart in my bosom, mine in thy sheath
In Lachesis' leaves, was liaison blest penned
Merging in thine, my soul, paradigming complete.
In cavernous depths, a desire doth dwell
From thy chalice humble, sip nectar divine
In thy virgin embrace, the Seventh Heaven fell
Lie bacchic in thee, till death of time.
Plunged in thine orbs, doused in thy ocean
In crimson love, Draped I, add kind Eros' coal
Robed in thy hues, perfumed thy love potion
At thy feet, Sate I, at mine cosmos whole....
