Pygmalion | Jacob Haddon

 
 

have you now, Pygmalion
you turned your eyes from woman
worshiping art as your patron

marble peeled away, revealing
her perfection underneath
but your Galetea is stone

weep at her feet
then I will listen, when you understand
I am not a vengeful goddess

now kiss her, Pygmalion, kiss her warm lips
and know that without me

you are only marble
