How To Win A War (gods Collide)

by CJ Maleney   May 16, 2017


He sits upon his throne,
Chin on the pommel of his sword.
Looking at his offerings
But he wants something more.

The three that kneel before him,
Are beautiful it's true,
But they do not light a fire
He yearns for something new.

With the clicking of his fingers,
He's vanished and is gone.
A split second a fraction in time
He explodes upon the land.

He marches into town,
His mighty voice does roar.
The townsfolk have to emerge
They know that he is war.

The elders stand before him
They shrink away and cringe.
He lifts one up casts him aside
An inconsequential thing.

He walks around in circles
Trying to hold back his rage.
"Why bring me these silly little pretty things"
"No more than birds that should be caged"

A woman parts and leaves the crowd,
She stands there tall and bold.
A fire burns within her eyes
Hair simmering like gold.

He can't belive her defiance,
He doesn't know he's met his match.
This woman is a professional,
To most men not a catch.

As quickly as he came they're gone,
And they end up in those furs.
When she gets up to leave his bed
His mind is left a blur.

She moves around his hall with grace
For one so tall she moves so lightly
"You did not tell me your name"

"My Lord it's Aphrodite"

    I had a feeling it was her..only the Goddess of love is bold
    and defiant! Wish there were more like her in reality who can match
    up to a man and bring him down :) just my thought.

    Sorry I keep doing this, but the first line: He sits upon his thrown,
    there is a typo - throne

    all in all I liked the read and one more thing, this line:
    "My Lord it's aphrodite"
    Why capitalize My Lord and not capitalize Aphrodite..? Are you trying to make
    a point or can I start a small argument about it :)

    Keep penning!
