Spawn of a Lower Star
SOMA SEMA Your body is a tomb. It was 1984. I was fifteen years old. The flashbacks from my past lives were here. Like flashes from a movie. I asked the dead, 'WHO AM I'. I prayed for a sign. I knew I was someone from a history book. I felt it. I guessed Austria. I guessed Italy. Then the sign arrived. I woke up and the wall in front of me had big black letters. O R P H E U S. I told the dead I don't understand. I pulled the Websters dictionary from the shelf. It said a magical musician. Master of my destiny. I thought this word was an adjective. I had no idea it was a person from Greek mythology. Years pass and I attended the University of Arizona and took humanities. Nothing mentioned about Orpheus. The internet arrives and in 1997 I learn how to search for the first time. I find details and facts about places I lived in past lives. I remember in the year 2001 the word ORPHEUS and decide to look it up only to find WHO I AM. ORPHEUS.. So sad. So I now know why my love life is cursed. I brought my wife back from the dead. That's forbidden on Earth. The GODS are very angry with me. I accept my punishment. I loved my wife. She was very beautiful. It's true, the nymphs still beg me for sex. I push them away. I still love my wife Eurydice.
