Love is lovelier when it’s forbidden.
Because it’s forbidden
it’s supposed to be hidden.”
– fr. Etiquette for Mistresses, on Rule # 7,
Jullie Yap Daza
WIELD YOUR HEX NO MORE
(Love that is forbidden is hidden.)
enter my psyche not, you goblin of lore
trick or trap, cast not, your magic of yore
critters and jitters tingle down my groin
exorcise you (can I?), with itch in loin?
there’s magic I feel by your haunted spell
escape (can I?), from your pit where I fell?
raves within me, I must hold never more
ah, Goblin of Love, wield your hex no more!
temperate and tropical.
