The Sun Song 05/15-8/09/2011


I have felt the rays of the sun across my skin,
as sunbeams writhe through my hair. The sun
has a face that smiles and a terrible beauty
that runs in only the blood of gods.

His flames consume me, as I am seared to
the very core. Engulfed with desire, that which is
primal, something left unknown.

This mystery leads me on a merry chase through the
labyrinth forest, each riddle becoming ever more beguiling.

As the sun and I found each other and the exchange of bliss,
upon the forest floor. I had never known of a love like this
before, the tender prey fallen to the Hunters kiss.

There he took me to a place unknown, my fingers clawing
the ground below. The clouds above me making way for the
fiery glory. As my universe reached supernova heights and
sent me sinking into the loams of the forest floor.

I find myself singing the songs of the Sun.


We stayed like this for days, in each others worlds.
Bestowed the love of a god what an amazing prize, as he had
my eyes and lungs to be gasping. I shall never fear him
for his love is just and pure.

With laurels in my hair, and the hymns of the nymphs, I
find myself singing the songs of the Sun.
