Αγάπη και Έρως (Devotion and Fever)

I lie in bed,
Awake,
Awake,
Awake.

You lie there too, asleep.
Breathing calmly, slowly,
In
Out
In.

The minutes run, I write
Emotions misplaced,
Entangled.
No rest.
No rest.
No rest.

Outward vista, αγάπη,
A love to utter its call,
Unconditionally, eternally,
Each day,
Repeating.
Repeating.
Repeating.

Inner inferno, έρως,
The heat of lust
That rips and claws,
Aches and scars
Again
And again
And again.

A look that burns,
Through rapt, deep eyes,
Enflaming me,
That primal pulse,
Of desire,
Of longing,
Of fire.

Αγάπη και Έρως
Devotion and Fever
Waging barbarous war
On themselves,
On me,
On you.

I lie in bed,
Splitting and shuddering
In febrile duality
Awake,
Awake,
Awake.
