My leave of absence following several months of inactivity is over. I have returned and I will be here on and off.

secrets are easier kept in the dark//sinsofpassion//impulsivity

     fertility goddess
         desperate to find her soul
         among ruins of her life
and one.
         urgent to prove himself 
         to an unforgiving world
makes two.
         driven by longing
         and gravitating towards one another
makes four.
     secret rendezvous
     hidden from eyes
     that might disapprove
     in the dark/dead of night
     beneath the sleeping kind
     where only shadow-minds wander

            and the Two
             wondered what they’d do
              if their secret “what”
               should turn into 

             but the fruit
              of the womb
               the herald of doom
                was not the vivification
                 of a dormant potential
                  but the deterioration 
                   of a love into

     and so
      they broke up that night
       fled from the dark depths
        to the light
         not a though more
          for their once

and that’s the story of “you and me” once know as “we”.
This is a fictional work. I liked the idea and went with it. I’d love to hear your thoughts! Hope you have a marvelous day! :)

P.S. I was thinking poppet in the occult sense, if you were looking for clarification.
