Revelation 17

“Apart from the fact that they prostitute their daughters, the Lydian way of life is not unlike our own.”
– Herodotus

Dearest Lydia,
Once again I find myself writing to you.

We have become intrinsically connected. Perhaps there was once an 'us' and 'them', a 'you' and an 'I', but in this mad storm of passion all things have blurred together. I have gone into you, and you into me and we have become one flesh.

And what is this talk of prostituting daughters, Lydia? Slanderous, slanderous! Those who tell me I am blinded by my love… fools! It is my love that allows me to truly see. Let me cast out the one who speaks such words. Let me speak of your beauty, let me speak of the longing the fills me when I am apart from you. I pray that I will never be parted from you again.

“let's grow old
and die together
let's do it now”
– Ani Di Franco
