Aphrodite's Kiss (Tectractys)

by Bryan   Oct 1, 2006


Her
smile is
sweeter than
Aphrodite's
kiss, moments with her I forever miss.
At these times I feel I will lose my mind,
then it hits me
that I have
been so
blind.
After
all this
time I can
only guarantee,
that my love for her is sweeter than any.
Aphrodite's kiss can never compare,
to the angels
love that I
always
share.

    Oh! wow, this was beautiful. The style was definately that of something I've never seen before, but it definately made the poem that much more interesting. It was wonderfully worded, and an another brilliant poem. 5/5

    That was beautiful. This is a very interesting style, and I have to admit it's not one of my favourites, but you handled it well. Always capitalize your 'I's. =]
