Garden of Eden

Garden of Eden by Paul Idiaghe

You were the Garden of Eden

fruits to quench my hunger

flowers to garnish your beauty

and I was lost in your bounty

and all your animals,

domestic and wild.

Your smile was like a serpent,

luring me

to taste your heart

until I did

and you banished me.

But now I can see

and I’m no longer

coursing naked through your garden

you cursed me—blessed me—to toil the soil

until I created

a garden of my own.

Now I savor every fruit

in my garden

without any worry

of getting banished.

Pale Moon, Cold Moon by Paul Idiaghe

Pale moon, Cold moon,

listen to the howls of my soul,

steal me from the earth at night

like you have done to the sunlight

Pale moon, Cold moon,

I wonder what secrets lay in your belly

swallow me, let me seethe tales that unravel in the noon.

Pale moon, Cold moon,

take me with you when the sun awakes,

hide me in your solace, be my cocoon.

Morph me into a star, while the earth heals from her aches.
