Flowers of Evil

I've been reading Charles Baudelaire's 'Les Fleurs du mal' every morning for the past couple of weeks. Call me profane, call me blasphemous but I actually enjoy reading 'banned' poetry. After all it's just poetry.

'Turn down to me your eyes, so blue and so full of stars!
For just one charming glance, divinely healing balm,
I'll raise the veil for you of pleasure's secret depths,
And lull you fast asleep within and endless dream!'

— Charles Baudelaire
(Flowers of Evil, Condemmed Women: Delphine and Hippolyta)
