Aztec Eyes (Canto I )

this is *very* much a Work in Progress...a Story slowly unfolding...
Smooth velvet eyes glisten like Rain, sparkle my face;
I am falling, tumbling, lost!

unholy Thunder rumbles - your hands!
brightest Lightning slices, shrieks!

Who would expect
ancient Aztec diamonds
Poetic lies inside your eyes...?
I never knew til Desert dearth descended on my Night.
Dawn, a dusty secret path, through
brambles, my ankles!
blood river writhes down MoonLit legs.
You move, unscathed,
hard pirate brave,

in mountain Night
I'm yours to save...
but your heart hides beneath your Body; you... slave!
If I were to say these words...


I follow you, tears unshed, to nowhere, to heavens

heartquakes pound, screams rhyme; your voice!
a god so beautiful as you
what could you want with me?
Let muscled hand Scorch, sear my face
I care not; I am not here ?
Our colours paint a forest face
a landscape foreign ancient new
Yet I have traveled here before,
Clandestine Nights, an older Life,
We slept beneath her lemon tree
Awoke to suck limon verde
Morning, ripe for us to eat
Primordial cries of ecstacy!
la sierra madre dances, rumbles,
rules all Life, sings memories old,
Her horizon jagged, smoothed by Time
Her Secret Songs, the Life she sees!
ancient women weep in Her crevices..
Lovers secret, stolen bride
Time to leave my parents' home
Mi novio god, warrior mine,
I forever Give myself to thee
Please love me always
You make me weep
I hide inside the monte's brambles
Sshhh! he hears, dark wedded mine.
You knew not who I was, mi love,
Disguised, I was, in peasant's raiments
Waited centuries for you

Take me but I yield not all;
Do you not hear the eagle's call?
You mount me as your spirited steed
Yet sooner take your whip to me
My Love, my lord, your sacred bride
My cries stay silent, you don't see
My restless Sleep in desert mount
My aching Soul, finally free ?
I fly to your embrace once more
The hells screech! Heavens! no escape
To feel your ancient Aztec eyes
weep diamond piercings on my breasts
You own my aching body new
Our Souls scream! struggle, intertwine
Forever Dance the Dream of Love

Who would expect, ancient Aztec diamonds
Poetic lies inside your eyes...?
I never knew til Desert dearth descended on my Night.
Behold a blinding DayLight Moon
Saguaro fruit bathe sweet your tongue
I suck the juice ripe from your lips
Thoughts revel in your drunkenness
Hear thunderous horses in the mount

Imagine I am your bride anew!
My Soul, I vow, you shall not own,
My Soul to la sierra flies;
I'm but a woman in your eyes.

search Deeply ! Move your desert eyes!
your proud true ancient mothers - see?


I've flown once more,to ancient Mount
My Soul to stay

please do not call

For now they hold me, Mothers all
Your eyes, black diamonds, don't deceive
She who reaches out for me
Yet your dark dust Song , your sick sweet bruised love...
Whispers ancient threats
on the NightFall breeze
Tickles me ear, breathes ecstacy.
The mothers bathe me in rare, precious mountain brooks,
kissed by agua miel;
Honey water's baptism
soothes not to clean my crimson pride...

I could break through these ancient arms
to be with you, your humble slave
but I shall resist your eyes, ... a Moment...

Even while I hear your pulsing pounding rhythm,
boldly quiet; soft and strong,
I remember why you hold me,
Rip through me with jeweled knives in your eyes

El Monte whispers lies to me?
You are no Warrior of old,
but a man who's told he holds dominion divine
a believer of lies, deceit an easy game...

Here across the Horizon, the Monte mothers hold me down...

Who would expect ancient Aztec diamonds
Poetic lies inside your eyes...?
I never knew til Desert dearth descended on my Night.
