Inspired by Keats' Lamia, I posted this in another thread but here it is in its rightful place.

Lycius' answer to Apollonius.

"Give me the dream
The dangerous dream.
Give me the delusion
Give me the deceit.

Lamia's coils hold me,
Sensually? for sure - I
Love her deadly grip:
I suffocate gladly.

Apollonius!! farewell.
Bear my heart in mind:
Love, not my reason
Survives my wounds."
