Kevin Eberhardt


when legend devours myth
religion savors the scraps
sucking the marrow but
what about the night
that still pagan darkness
where secrets are born
of forbidden acts
lapping at the breast of
mother earth
i want to be cradled in
her arms
lulled by her touching
breathing in her sensual
like a childish memory
when the world was magic
and pain was fleeting and
sex was holding hands and
what happened to the time
before time
when blood was still blue
and crying was just a ghost
in a dream
