how did it happen, that the god fell in love?

how did it happen, that the god fell in love?


when the earth was all raw and new,

he saw His smile.


And that was it.


His world lit up

at Him, this hiccup in the cosmic infrastructure

and He had him wandering the streets, slumped against the gallows,

lying on the blacktop, lonesome old cowboy.


The one man He couldn’t see beyond,

Wouldn’t look past

His future, his destiny, his desire

Could he believe the sound of His laughter

could grip him at his Eldritch roots?

Could lay him flat with just one look?


They say to keep your enemies close

but that’s not what the god was doing

when he drew in his adversary,

held him close,

kissed him

and became Each Other.


They say you keep your enemies close,

but that’s not what the god was doing

when he huddled with his lover,

needfire at the bare bones

held him, knowing it was his ending,

and mixed their blood

and became Him.


how the god fell in love was this; easily

readily


he yielded like it would break him not to


how could he do anything else? he saw his smile.

and that was it.
