Lilith

Lilith

A Poem by costa siwale
"

A female facination

"
Soft hair, like newly shaved wool
Its feel, real, firm and full.
Tender skin which haunts mine
It's human scent, indented in my mind.

I swoon over your feminine curves
a godly form radiant with pleasure waves.
Your deep dark eyes are piercing
Your scarlet lips, glow inviting,
their teasing taste, unearthly passion
am chained! Devoured by celestial seduction.

You possess me lilith! Mind, body, soul
ages now, to come and before.
And though they say you're in my mind
You are more real and meaningful than anything I've found.

Restrained passion, "Tender skin which haunts mine" such a lovely idea. "Devoured by celestial seduction", there are several truly remarkable turns of phrase in this work.
The general construct of this piece is strong, and the treatment of the theme is controlled well.
There is to my mind an issue with using the same word several times in the same work, in this case "mind" which I believe at line 4 and 13 could be changed, leaving the line 11 thought it is part of untouched.
Of course the line 4 change would also assist with the difficulty of the disappearing rhyme, in fact a change of "full" in line 2 would bring the first stanza into harmony with the rest of the work, evening out the flow.
I believe you are missing an "I" at the beginning of line 10, if of course I am following the thought of the second stanza correctly.
This is an interesting treatment of the Lilith legend, regardless of the view one wishes to take of her, this work plays among several threads of her mythology, with out getting tangled in any way.

Very fine write Costa!! You started to rhyme the first stanza and then you seemed to abandon that which you started which confused me a little. Other than that. Nice poem. CD

No don't say that. Fine write. Tighten it up brother and you'll have a gem.

This Is very true.

(in the Old Testament and in Jewish folklore) a female demon,
who attacks children.


Jewish Folklore. Adam's first wife was Lilith , before Eve
was created and she wouldn't listen to god she disobeyed him
and she was kicked out of the garden of Eden.



Lilith to me is of the the devil as
the devil can be in any form
he wants a woman an attractive man
and a beautiful angel but if a woman
is rebellious and doesn't obey god they're
following their flesh.



So this was more of a Temptation to
me this is why the name can be so alluring
her name draws you in like a Temptress
she caused her own sin to disobey God.




so I know very well what she was
she wasn't good when I see her
name the devil comes up and these
things are very real you know someone
by their fruits and she choose to not follow
God.



But thank you for sharing
and thank you for your kind review
and comments you left on my page.



God bless. Benita
