Considering Eve

Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created. (Genesis 5:2 KJV) 

From the moment you breathed 
Dust disturbed across this barren earth
I was clothed in radiance
Infusa lux Dei
Skin and bone and soul 
As one we walked in the still of the morning 
Tender blooms un-bruised by the weight 
Of flesh pressed soft 
Fertile ground I found 
The fatal embrace 
Sinister beauty 
And choices begat consequence 
And consequence begat the lie
Never the two shall become one flesh again
Desperate we search for the God shaped hole
In our hearts 
Filling the emptiness with poison
Until the acid bleeds from my tongue
Suckling the whores 
Of Babylon 
I will burn forever and never be free

Trace the letters set in stone
Echoes etched by the hand of the Paschal lamb 
Qui sine peccato est primus lapis sint eiecti
And still the bastards would sell my daughters 
To sons for a goat and a gold nose ring
And consider Eve the mother of all imperfection
Yet you named us Adam…we were one…

Forgive them Father for they’re too stupid to understand
Angels with flaming swords a metaphor lost 
On sheeples and E.C. Wannabes
Intervention is a painful consequence when haughty children 
Cleave bone and souls to succor their own crave
This crumbling throne is transient 
I will walk in the cool of the morning with you
Clothed in light 
Again.
