Cursed.

I am
the curse of Eve
personified.
Her suffering
clings to my pores,
caresses my skin,
crushes my bones…

she shall
desire for her husband
infatuation
adoration
motivation.

what restless God spoke the
words of commitment?
what ancient world put
Her on the pedestal?
what cruel perversion
has pushed her back down?

In all the world,
all seven seas
my dreamy eyes
will wander free
but always settle,
so it seems
on Husband’s eyes
and cherished dreams.
