Shaman - Horse

Poem - Undone

The poem “Undone” is about a form of lust, the one that erupts when a vacant personal space is breached and the memory of a sensual life returns.


Some would call it lust
I would say the same
yet I state my case
aloud for you to hear
please now redefine
this longing I feel
handed by the Lord
and not demon sourced
at first it was mute
nothing to be seen
vacant in the midst
as this life prescribed
you were just a face
pretty as the rest
standing in the room
waiting to confuse
my lonely retreat
from a too cold world
this quiet despair
hunger for a touch
awaken by you
only suggested
such a simple thing
saying of the words.

Attention given
by apparition
in angel's disguise
and imp's delight
to a lonely one
no longer forlorn
too weak to regret
what happens next
longing to indulge
follow the whispers
where the fates may lead
where the voice is found
should I look upward
for temptation's source
or downward to Hell
to find the true way
away from the lusting
relief is the same
echoes of needing
arrive in the now
morals suspended
this is what's asked
temptation arrives
again I am undone.
