Goddess of Love
August 13, 2010 § 5 Comments
When i am sitting at the door of a tavern,
I, Ishtar, the goddess,
Am prostitute, mother, wife, divinity.
I am what people call life,
Although you call it death.
I am what people call Law,
Although you call it Deliquency.
I am what you seek
And what you find.
I am what you scattered
And the pieces you now gather up.
Ancient lyrics to Ishtar, the Mesopotamian Goddess of Love
