Gods of Love

Oh Aphrodite Have I mistaken Love   Passion oozes Skin grinds against skins Breathing in the moist Smell of holy union   Oh Cupid Have I mistaken Love   My hands glide through her hair Like black mares Running in the dark Oh the hair   Oh Venus Have I mistaken Love   For faith […]

Dear War

There is no art in you There is nothing romantic about you There is no peace to follow you There is  nothing good about you War is bloody red Staining the chapters of history Then at times It’s grey and cold. You know what you are A blizzard that freezes The mind of Gods And […]
