Hunger Pains

Posted on January 11, 2015

Eternally Yours

O Lucifer, Deceiver, what a great serpent thou art!
Father of nothing, thou art consumed
By a private grief thou alone can know.
Always hungry, never sated,
Too full of thyself to speak —
Thou canst not share thy sorrow,
Thou canst not ask for love.

O Jacob, O Israel, be not so quick to meat!
Thou might love thyself to death.
