The Cave Of Love - Poem by Kojo Owusu

Etched on the votive vault and walls
Of the cryptic cave -
Your unsurpassed beauty and charming spells
The esoteric signs gothic and grotesque
Indicative of your unattainable qualities
With my firebrand
Blazing flares in the deadened silence
Of the shadows
I penetrate the cave of mystery
The archway receding into the dark recess
of night
I tread on the path of artifacts and fossils
Brush aside cobwebs of antiquity
Vociferous of your presence

There is a mystery in the cave
I must unravel
Your pastimes painted on the walls
Enough clues

The descent into the depth of a deity
The lowermost echelons
Of the underworld
Where there is the promise of the deluge of rocks
Falling - my heart a shield

With my blazing firebrand
I penetrate the dark cave of night
Wreathed with mystical aura
When a sound echoes and re- echoes in the cave
And the hills resound
The rhythmic timbre
I would be assured of the presence
of my deity engulfed by joyous ecstasy..
