Eurydice’s Ascent

Orpheus:

If love was enough,
it might crack through our ever tightening chests locked up

one              two            three times
with separate keys.

Perhaps the light, faintly glowing beneath the skin,
would be enough to illuminate
the caverns that
await
us.

The
path out
of hell is dark
yes
but its shadows only make for temporary blindness.

Lead on, you of gentle song.
I will follow
though                             the
way
is                            winding.

Let faith alone
(Don’t look back dear one.)
guide weary feet
(Your gaze would ruin us.)
up the steep trail toward the dawn.
