Oh Aphrodite!!!

Form: Ivorian Sonnet 28

Aphrodite – goddess of lust, illicit sex and beauty

Her beauty captivates my heart in chains
Of sweet lust rushing through my raptured veins
My nemesis of illicit desire
Enticing scent where pomegranate bloom
She’s sucking me closer to flames of fire
My resistance futile she’ll defeat me
In mortal weakness I fall to my knees
An erotic slave to Aphrodite
Who surrendered to a goddess’s tease
My want for beauty and all that inspires
While my smitten soul now all that remains
A man who answered her call on the breeze
So I will never again be set free
As she takes my passion in her bedroom
