In my wanderings on the face Of the Earth, I came across a lovely and Enchanting Lady which went By the name of Emanuela, She of the Blue Eyelids, and Daughter of the Azure Sunset. Emanuela was my dream Among the nightmares of the World, and in Her arms, I felt Like a god which loves in his Temple of desire, and has no Cares or concerns for the Everyday world of petty and Spiteful Mankind. Emanuela was my goddess, And I worshipped Her with Nameless rites which were Old when the World was young, And in my love of Her, I Experienced total and glorious Abandon. In my days with my beloved Emanuela, I kept a lookout for the scavengers And predators who stalked the Lonely and deserted corridors Of the Night, landing on the Shore of a hot, tropical island, And ready to violate my sweet And precious Emanuela, young And nubile, and lust-driven before The winds of Pazuzu, god of the Hot desert winds, and of pestilence. In my time with my Lady Emanuela, I became as a babe in a mother's Arms, oblivious to thought and Sensation. With Emanuela, I was in the seas Of Eternity, And I did not care where my ship Landed. In Her forbidden regions, I was Not myself, and I did not know Who I was, or where I was at. Time had no meaning for me, Because when I was with Emanuela, Time was Naught, And I was not. In the days of our lovemaking, We looked out over the shores Of Infinity, And took our fill of love and lust, Not caring whether all of Creation lived or died. Many a time, I died in Her arms, Only to be resurrected with A whisper, and a kiss. Emanuela was my life, And my love. When the World became Her master, I became Her slave. Many have entered Her, And many have forgotten Her. But I, Vasili Bakagias, have Her Transcriptions of love etched In my tormented soul, And I am forevermore a lord Of Her sweet and sensual Passions, And a keeper of Her secret And arcane Mysteries. For it is written in the lost Annals of Love's forbidden And unknowable tome that Emanuela, Daughter of the Azure Sunset, And She of the Blue Eyelids, Was my only true love in this World of lesser beings and Senseless destinies. Hail the Starry Void of Love!
