A Goddess's Ballad


Words sculpted by an empyrean mistral
Yet strewn with empathy
And sprinkled with a lingering harmony
Soothing to the orgasmic ear drums
Serenading the soul
Like a flutist on a gondola
As passion ferments from the deepest abysses
Of a reservoir overflowing with love
As a goddess sprinkles affection
With her silvery intonation
Her angelic voice
That breeds life to my world
And levitates me to the heavens
As a nightingale parts with
The ballad of her heart

The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
