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
