Gouri Vemula

Ev-e-il
Light-bearer
Lucifer
lurks
around
the world
he
darkened...
While  Eve
lives a life
of damnation...
No longer chaste - 
never to be
hearkened!

Birds of prey
prey upon her beauty...
And devils of hatred
Assemble
to do
the
death duty.

Following Satan's decree
she lies
fettered
within
the folds of
a tree...

And
Kinnara
looks
at her
with
horse-eyes
of caprice

Lecherous demons
Conquer
every side...
As
the waters of doom
Rape Adam's bride...

Styx, the river
Is bleeding red
Adam is dead
Oh!Adam is dead!

A boat
now
lies stagnant
on the shore
But it moves no more
It moves no more!

  1. Very 'Leda and the Swan'-ish, in a biblical way.
