Hide Jekyll, Hyde!

`

Part demon, part angel,
your gaze draws me nigh.
Part animal, part divine;
the celestial hosts sigh.

Doubts leak like a broken tap,
assurances cloud the sky.
Drip and drop to fill the gap;
your balmy words can't dry.

An easel for pigments to trap;
row by row hung from a vine.
Libation pressed flesh and sap;
A bloodied cudgel rests supine.

Rosina, how perfectly J&H reflect the dual nature of people. Thanks for your kind words of comment.
Cheers, CB
