Of Eden Or Venom?

My empty heart searched for a true lover.
I knew I needed someone, ever since I learned to be.
Yet wherever I search, my love, I can't seem to discover.
Is there no girl here? No one for a being like me?

I am unable to enjoy the wonders of life.
Despite my body is living well-kept,
my heart longs for an eternal wife.
To have her, I would any pain accept.

And thus alone I roamed the land,
passing animals during their mating.
I was like a shore without sand.
My sandless beach just waiting.

Yet on a cold night, I came across one.
In the middle of an unspoiled garden, we met.
She looked ravishing, my heart she had already won.
The woman, who would make me my torment forget.

An owl screeched as our eyes gazed into each other.
Mysterious like the space between stars, her eyes were.
Her naked body, I would soon with my lips smother.
She was the woman of my wet dreams, it was her!

Our first words linger on my mind even today.
In me, her scorching soulless song sizzles.
In my dreams, with her body she on me still drizzles.
I wish to see her again in the future on a better day.

For she left after our first time and has not yet returned.
I was so reckless and nervous, one could not control oneself.
My actions and words, might have her heart burned.
And even today, for what I did to her, I curse myself.
