My Aphrodite

Avatar Author: Schmendrick A great wizard in training. Read Bio

Silky, golden, straight and bright;
More flowing than a forest sprite’s…
It glistened like the morning light—
The hair of my fair Aphrodite.

Fairer than pale Luna’s sight;
Glistened like a lake at night,
as it reflects that Luna’s light—
The skin of my sweet Aphrodite.

Sweet, fulfilling, erudite;
Flew higher than the highest kite,
Made points with a vicious bite—
The mind of my all, my Aphrodite.

All pure, giving, and full of might,
Ferocious; like a Lioness’ fight
’Twas a challenge, to find a blight—
The soul of my lost Aphrodite.

And though she may be scattered dust,
I imagine her living on every gust.
From now until the end I must
Remember her, and keep her trust.

I won’t forget.

    Hey, welcome to Ficly!

    That first verse has a great feel to it. Reminds me of Porphyria’s Lover a little.

    An enchanting, fairytale feel to it – starts off in bright, sunny spring and ends up in melancholy autumn. Nicely done.

    This piece lends depth to the topic of the challenge while staying away from the negativity that often seems to inevitably follow the idea of an ending. A truly wonderful entry.

    Also, welcome to ficly fellow poet!
