Helen, o Helen, Let down your unbound hair For I’m bound for the round Of your hips Used to be I'd shrug the price Of the hardened sacrifice To be told That your face Launched those ships— Now I’m down, o I’m down Here on mortal, quaking ground And I’m lost in the dark Of the truth; Well I wish I’d brought a knife So I’d slice out every eye Of the stares That undressed you As you moved. Tear these towers down, Dark as the blood dried brown; Bury your histories, And I’ll bear you home from Cypridi. Tell ‘em, o tell ‘em, Those kings that claim you theirs, That I’m here and don’t fear What they wield; I’ve a thousand years of strife Stacked on ev’ry year of mine From the mothers Come before me With their ire... Hear, o hear Those voices in the dark, From the souls twisted up And rent thru; While my sisters weather hell In the stories keepers tell I’ll crouch here, With what trouble I can brew...
Aspetos 04:10
I'd sear a thousand seas To see you smile, And when I'm drunk on hope (It's only once In a while) I might cling to you In a dream; Hoping you might stay Close to me… Tell me I'm bleeding I'll tell you I'm doing fine; I'll bring the water And maybe you bring the wine So I'll drink you up In one sip; Licking every dreg From your lips— And I'd put the stars Back in your eyes; I'd take them from home, Out of the sky, And I'd leave them there Without care For the holes they left In the air…
