When to say "No" to the heavens
The noose of a marriage being obligation,
his gaze rested upon my eyes like a new day,
his Sol requirement my thoughts and my affections,
thus I came awake,
like a Heliotrope my head turning towards light.
Everyday science chastises-
'stare too long the sun can blind.'
Echo likewise personifies the fate of falling for an image
that distant…She chimes with self-love infatuated,
an endless, hollow repeat of 'Narcissus'.
When all along my husband, earthbound to toil at my side...
for him I tell the Day I have obligations
to save for the cooling nights to untie
and reveal us two as constant Lovers
chasing down the stars.
