A poem based on the myth of Icarus and the Sun.

He fell down the deep sea

Like Icarus, he was naive:

mesmerized by the sight of the bright sun that thieved him from the sky .

I wonder why did Eros shot the arrow trough the boy's heart, for the love was uncalled, unfair and acquiescent, the undeniable cause of the fall.

Yet, even if I drown in the vastness of the dark sea, I beg you, Eros, make of my heart the target of your spear over and over until the air fails to hold my eyes open, staring at the dim sun in the far sky.
