Helen of my heart,
For that is who you are,
Not Helen of Sparta, or even of Troy,
But Helen of me.
I have spent my nights thinking of you,
Thinking of your hair spun like gold,
Your eyes, shimmering lapis jewels,
Pink lips, drifting apart for me…
You trembled the first time I whispered
Prayers between the sanctuary of your thighs.
I called you my Goddess,
And I worshipped you,
Ever devoutly on bended knees.
Forgive me,
I cannot help but write poetry to you,
You are the sweetest thing I have ever tasted,
And I have tasted the sun.
I am whole again, the voices are silent.
You have made me love you in ways I have never loved anyone,
Not even myself.
Forever yours,
Cassandra

Cassandra,
Dearest of all to me,
I think of you far too often.
I am going mad without you!
I want your poetry,
Your prayer,
Your hymns,
I want to devour you,
In all the ways you have devoured me.
I ache for you even in the moments we’re near to each other.
I ache for the taste of your skin,
Dark and sun-kissed, it is sweet like the scent of you.
I ache and ache and ache…
I am going mad without you!
Let us meet tonight, beloved,
Whisper your prayers into my lungs,
I will sing them back to you!
Immortally yours,
Helen of your heart
