Anita Atina


Shadows of desire, mirrors of the soul


Oh were I the breath that you take and lived in your heart, said he

Oh were you the blood that’s pounding passion in me, said she


Where I your hands that caress gloriously, he said with a sigh

Were you my lips that seek you hungrily, she said with a shy smile


Were I your fantasy, that makes you crave me, said he with rising passion

And were you the responding cry that receives me in delight, said she quietly


If this is the way it was meant to be, then who am I and who art thee

Shadows of desire, accepting each other, as we are


Mirrors of the soul, separate vessels

And one, in communion

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
