Da'ath
elysium

"Spread your wings and fly",
 1
he told me, when I told him to give  
 2
back his money. "I want to hold your hand",
 3
he said.
 4
    
 5
That was the same night the elementals
 6
swarmed down crashing about my walls, and the dragon flew  
 7
above, and I was beckoned into the night
 8
of Pan...  
 9
    
 10
"Do you know what you have?"
 11
    
 12
"She let me out. She's fed up."  
 13
    
 14
"I know you. I've seen you."
 15
    
 16
[Words that moved me with pain and passion;
 17
It was the sharpest intimacy I had ever known,  
 18
The most torturous orgasm of mind and soul,
 19
A knife of intensity eating my skull out.]  
 20
    
 21
The morning after  
 22
he passed through me,
 23
the east was like the west;  
 24
An arctic ocean breeze stirred through  
 25
and I remembered it from a far away land..
 26
    
 27
I felt the temples and the tide  
 28
coming in; I felt bliss  
 29
that I hadn't known in this life  
 30
    
 31
[The world was clean.]  
 32
    
 33
And I heard screaming
 34
as souls were taken,  
 35
forced to look themselves
 36
in the mirror.

"...is the serpent who rises to meet the Empress who's totem is the door, dare you enter. At that moment of orgasm there is a surrender, the ego falls and consciousness rises to touch paradise"

"Ten is the number of the ineffable Sephiroth, ten and not nine, ten and not eleven. Understand this wisdom, and be wise in the perception."
