They are not legends of history
Still love gives them epic proportions
Epic proportions as in homeric tragedy
Epic distortions as in buffo comedy
Only the sky knows what can ever be
(But then who knows enough of the sky?)
Every epic love has an epic end
With dark epic battles in-between
Which battles do lovers epically fight?
Bodies, souls or broken hearts?
When they know what dying is like
All or nothing, nothing or all!
(Dedicated to Calliope, Greek Muse of Epic Poetry, and to other Muses here indirectly referred.)
