GODDESS OF DESIRE
You, goddess of desire- love and lust-
possess an eternal power of pouring cold water
to put off the flame of austere devotion
burning in the hearts of million yogis.
The flame of dedication turns into
fumes of pollution to contaminate
the cleanliness of the very environment.
You force one to change one’s right track.
One having concentration can take the path again,
while one losing it, is lost forever.
You, the killer of many innocent lives
fail to win permanently over a wise.
