STARDUST by Andromachi Benekou


Andromachi Benekou

Love is a conqueror

shoots silver arrows

but if it happens that you refuse him

it throws you into the marshes!

He is a fierce warrior

He holds you like a booty

As "slave" you follow

your golden crown wears!

After the violent invasion

flowers of the soul have withered

you are in divine court

your spirit is enchanted!

You go through secret passages

swallow tails fly low

you arrive at the Parthenon as a king

they wear your purple tunic!

That's where your life shines

in the stone-pillared alleys

stardust is gathering

in five-petalled lilies!

Unsuspecting you taste it

you think it is the nectar of the Gods

you never heal

follower of the passions…
