Aphrodite


Don't do it,
Don't even try,
Seasons yearned for it,
What autumn just complied.

Don't you tuck,
Fallen hair behind...
Till the spring blows a whistle.
Till the summer harsh up a little.

Or else, you may allow
My fingers to tuck them in.
To be close to those perfect lips...
To feel the velvet of your skin...

To sing a song into your ear,
And light up the evening a bit.
Then, let the body do the talking
If only, you permit...

Stepping close I wonder,
Beauty so sublime.
Speaking only with her eyes,
She pauses time.

*Aphrodite is the greek goddess of love and beauty. Reposting one of my favorite poems.

  18. I was wondering, Haven't I read this poem here before. See I remember your poems, if not word by word, at least the theme ;-). There is a hidden beauty behind the words, something we can experience only at a certain point of our lives ;-)
