Venus Rising

Venus was thought to be the Earth’s beautiful twin sister but the reality is oh so different and a damned good metaphor for certain failed relationships to boot.  The eerie sound of the constant lightning detected by the Venera probes led Russian scientists to nervously refer to it as the ‘electric dragon of Venus’.


 

VENUS RISING

Curtains close on twilight

When Venus casts her spell

Where her beauty shrouds

A sulphur-burning hell

Where titanium snow

Falls from her howling sky

As lightning sears her her soul

As her electric dragon cries…

 

  She’s my Evening Star

  Shine – seven deadly sins

 It’s not the earth that moves me

     It’s the world below that spins…

 

     You rise before the sun

        You set after the sun

           You hold me in your arms

         And you burn me.

 

Home with her sullied sister

In Gaia’s velvet night

Souls shining neutron-blue

In the flat-screen TV light

In a world full of ones and zeroes

There’s a stranger in your bed

Who cannot stay till morning

Now that her electric dragon’s dead. . .

 

She’s my Evening Star

Shine – seven deadly sins

 It’s not the earth that moves me

    It’s the world below that spins…

 

     You rise before the sun

        You set after the sun

           You hold me in your arms

         And you burn me.

 

She’s just so beautiful!
