A Poem by DaughterNature

I posted this once before, but this is an updated version.


I love the way you love me and the way

you teach me how to truly love myself.

I see myself through your deep eyes when we’re

alone: the graceful silkiness of pure

and sculpted stone. Athena, Aphrodite,

and Artemis imbue me with their cold

pureness �" ancient beauty. Can you resist

the wish to place your sweet soft kisses on

my bold, infatuating garnet lips?

Caress my marble shoulders, run your hands

o'er top my flowing coral hair until

the stonework yields and starts to warm beneath

your touch. Then take your time to taste

the fruitful flavors of my flesh and sink

your teeth into the ripeness of my neck,

devour me in succulent citrus

segments with bright sweet juice to spark your soul

and senses, too. I did not see at all

before, but now within the mirror of

your adoration I can see, review

my body, beauty, all because of you.

Wow. Reading this took my breath away! I love that you incorporated viewing yourself as a stone structure of those three goddesses because stone holds still those virtues. The lyrical language that flows was lovely. I have no critiques.

Thanks for posting! Have a great day!

Thank you so much!
Wonderful and delightful. Beautiful writing about 'Beauty' with a touch of Greek mythology rolled in. What more could one ask for? Everyone wants to be appreciated and loved, to feel 'Beautiful'. This makes me think of the quote, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" - but we must behold it ourselves.

Thank you!
i really like flow the near rhyme into it with such deftness...

and i love the theme of how one person can often help another see his or her eye of understanding, compassion and love---

sometimes it is so tough to love ourselves...we need that other perspective.
