Reverberation - Poem by Gabriela Duricova

In the night I run away from starlight
Its source, a space-leak
Delivers flashbacks
Of ultraviolet love

That once upon a time
Widened my pupils
Being the most addictive
Of all treacherous dope

Beneath ebony stars we were sitting
Looking for Orion's belt
He loosened and untied it
To make love with me

I was supposed to be his muse
Embody love
Like an ancient goddess
But what we had was more of Divine comedy

As Sistine chapel for god is but a living room
One of so many, one of too many...
His soft lips cracked
Of thirst and he drank me

What more - he was getting drunk
Of a spirit not meant to be bottled
We both sank into quicksand running in spirals
And for each other we disappeared behind the mirror
