Song of Orpheus

This melody

Speaks to the marrow

Death,

Do you weave your web

To keep me bound

Or to keep me away?

If I cannot act

From love

then how shall I love

Because from afar

Kisses grow stale 

This catabasic

Journey

Ends

Begins

With this

My song

To kiss without trepidation

Life back to my Eurydice

Have her walk a step behind me

Once again

And should I fail

To assert dominion

Over death 

Then shall I not look

Upon so divine caligypian

Flesh and a face

Which made me walk

Into hell

And sing her glory
