Far more lovely than any rose up in a tree.
Far more graceful than the dolphins in the sea.
Far more precious than a shell beneath the sand.
Far more desirable than any woman to hold your hand.
Who could ever match the poise of a God?
Who could ever taint such a beautiful façade?
Who would ever spill their love out like mine?
Who would ever provoke such a scorn so divine?
Watch as my scallop shell washes onto the shore.
Watch as my naked flesh leaves you writhing for more.
Watch as my luscious touch clings fervently to your skin.
Watch as my gentle voice seduces you from within.
Beauty, such a liar so humble, yet true.
Beauty, shall deceive even the wisest of few.
Beauty, the Queen Temptress of mankind.
Beauty, ensnares all except for the physically blind.
Love, a blossom well-kept and rightfully earned.
Love, I give those who sought more than they yearned.
Love, what many think they have found with ease.
Love, forgets the ignorance that follows my tease.
Jealousy, of what or better yet who?
Jealousy, of no one, especially not you.
Jealousy, of that one who stole my Eros away.
Jealousy, in my heart for her will always stay.
Dance, as the swans sway only for me.
Dance, as the sparrows hum their tunes in the tree.
Dance, as the doves pirouette across the sky.
Dance, as there is no beauty greater than I.
My name is Haze Smith (yes that's my real name) and I am a Writing and Linguistics major at Georgia Southern University. I have always enjoyed reading poetry while drinking a nice glass of scotch and listening to the hit Donna Lewis produced so many years ago. I hope you will enjoy piece about Aphrodite as much as I loved writing it.
