Hedone

Form: Ivorian Sonnet 27

Greek Gods of Love: Hedone, the goddess of pleasure

The pleasure of feeding your hunger and need
In your moment of want and sensual greed
With her mind floating on your unclipped wings
I feel your desire thrashing through your soul
And I whisper ‘love, you deserve these things’
Each lingering touch to set you aflame
And each kiss that echoes with my desire
The power of love I give in your name
My goddess should my heart thus so aspire
To take you there now; to where passion sings
Where my hedonistic soul waits to feed
This love of the beast can never be tame
I will take your want to make our love whole
In that moment we’ll set the world on fire
