The Elusive !

aphrodite

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Themed on Aphrodite, the greek goddess of Love, pleasure, and procreation, the following poem uses  her role in the Trojan war  as a metaphor for love

 

 

She rises with foam, they say

In her beauty, your heart would sway

Lust for all and flesh to elite

Never once, she settled for the petite

 

In the battle of wisdom, love and fidelity

She stole the show, ah!  She Ravishing beauty

In tandem dawned the Trojan, by and for love

Little did Paris know what was hanging above

 

Immortal she is, her beauty would never fray

For those who crave, her song would play

With no control on what your hormones expedite

If you haven’t got it yet, her name is Aphrodite

 

Be it Helen of the Mycenaean age

Or a mere goon with haphazard rage

With love she would forever play

Enticed, you will plead her to stay

But with foam she raises they say

Like foam she would vanish to your dismay

  1. Greek mythology never ceases to awe me. It’s so magical and dreamy dreamy. And Aphrodite – what to say about her. Aptly said, she appears and disappears like foam. Yeah. So do so many symbolical aphrodites in life – like love or money or temptations.
