Logophilia - A Seduction

Opus (I)
 
Lovers, like Icarus, fly too close to the sun;
  numinous aspirations.  
Leaving hearts to the open, patinaed into beautiful verdigris;  
   eroded memesis.  


Echolalic, "I love yous" never becoming    
   recursive proloxity.  
The atavistic skeining of bodies, wrapped in some hermetic paean;  
   concomitant efflorescence.  
He, chiseled by some hermetic lapidary, his body;  
     hallowed and charged.  


Both with febrile quiddity, he; her suzerain, ruling over her, she, with ineluctable beauty, given by the gods;  
    with no paucity or dross.  
   
He would write hagiographs on her soul with his flesh;  
  a renaissance of recursive apotheosis.

Author's Note
I know it's a tough one, may I recommend Word Hippo? It's worth ploughing through, the words and their power are beautiful. This is my ode to poetry and poets.

I also suggest reading it twice,...

I also suggest reading it twice, once you have defined the elusive words. It'll make more sense.
