Laughing At the Word Two

Only

That Illumined
One

Who keeps
Seducing the formless into form

Had the charm to win my
Heart.

Only a Perfect One

Who is always
Laughing at the word
Two

Can make you know

Of

Love.

Re: ya know

The idea that I could write better than Hafiz would be blaspemous to some people. Did I ever tell you how much I like blasphemy? Expecially if its black metal. :)
