Pandora

  I have plumbed the diamond mines of your eyes,
and swum the warm seas of your lips,
been lashed by the russet wheat of your hair,
tasted blood on your fingertips.

I have seen the fire in your belly rise;
dived my deepest on your breath.
I need you enough to realise
you have become my life and you’ll be my death.

I have watched you with your knees apart
pleasured by the morning sun,
I have measured our time by my beating heart,
I have revelled and rued what has been undone.

Your effulgence burns away my sight
until I am blind to all but your sun;
your moon shadow,cold and dark as midnight
leaves me desolate and undone.

Each night becomes day, each day night;
for you, the sun and the stars are toys
answering to your Hesiod wiles; you delight
in reducing men to boys.

I came to your game with a vain conceit
you would embrace love in my arms
but I admit my unconditional defeat
by the Jade goddess’s charms.
