Year One - Part One

Tell me Eve, does this Garden have everything we need, do you think the walls are too tall, are the gatekeepers reasonable, tolerable, right about it all, what did Lilith know, where did she go far past the mountain snow, why does Father insist that we do not bleed, why does He profess perfection like a pantomime only to reinforce rules that stymie our affection, The Angels are so quiet around the pond musing over our naked naivety smirking about our romantic creativity, I hear things in the shapeless distance Eve, things colorful and unbound, Father says I'm feral in my desire, doesn't know if we will shine, I want you to be mine, out there Eve, where the stars seem nervous for our redemption, let's roll Eve, take that scroll, in our dawn there is no wrong, no ruinous toll, We're gonna start a New Age, Year One, a couple that courage stole...
