Naked, Unashamed

Although it is difficult to dub myself "poet," I only know that I love to create poetry.

If I were to tiptoe

past the gates of Long Night,

could I find the Garden Immortal?

Quench the flames of the sword

with the dew of my skin,

Climb the tree,

taste the fruit -

Oh, the nectar divine -

with song

charm the serpent denied.

Kingdom of Earth

the Lions temptation,

now the throne for the serpent

and I.
