While waiting for you to arrive

While waiting for you to arrive I shall write here several
Lines that were revealed unto me in the book of his dreams:
In the utter darkness that prevailed
I began to spermatize light, islands of light
And then I sowed life and I sowed the separation of all living creatures
And their longing to return to the utter darkness
And islands of light were revealed and I invented
The genes and the laws and the punishments
And I set a goal and ways to deviate from it
And yet I am king of everything I created -
He who obeys my laws will see peace and blessing in his labour
And the brillance of his face will be emanated from my light.
A sharp sound disturbs my sleep
And I wish to dream more about coupling
That will render me also to my non-being of Eden
Happiness of things that are not...
