In Nomine Babalon, LXXXIV

LXXXIV

I open my eyes and awaken from sleep

And shatter the dream that has held me so deep.

It fades away in disillusion,

I raise up the cup and adore Babalon!

Yet Time To Turn in White Stains by Aleister Crowley.

“Brighter than snow on glittering Alps, the soul
Of my lost love was, bluer than the haze
Of those same hills, more violent and deep
Her eyes’ clear gaze,
Dreaming of hidden wonders; and the goal
Of life grew luminous o’er Time’s empurpled steep.” [via]

Mathilde in White Stains by Aleister Crowley.

“Oh cruel power
Of wide deep thighs that make me furious
As they enclasp me and swing to and fro
With passion that grows pale and drives the flow
Of the fast fragrant blood of both of us
Into the awful link that knits us close
With chain electric!” [via]

William Blake and the Imagination in Ideas of Good and Evil by William Butler Yeats.

“Furious and terrible they rend the nether deep,
The deep lifts up his rugged head,
And lost in infinite hovering wings vanishes with a cry.
The fading cry is ever dying,
The living voice is ever living in its inmost joy.” [via]
