In the Name of Love by Andrea Cueva

Many women have signed deals

With men they think to be devil

So when I say I looked into the burning eyes of Apollo

With the drinking habits of Dionysus

The fists of Ares

The flightiness of Hermes

I knew that the ink on the page

Where I signed my name

Would be in blood.


  • In the name of love.
