Aphrodite

Source

O queen of my midnight dreams,
O princess of moonlit night,
Deified love, eternal charm,
I worship you, day and night,
I desire you, I crave for you,
O nameless holy love-lady,
My dream, my enchanted night-sky,
My vision or reality?
My love or devotion?
I caress your golden locks,
Contemplate your enchanting eyes,
I kiss on your blushing cheeks,
I hold you but can’t possess.
I whimper like lunatics do,
‘You’re mine, you’re mine’, I howl,
But you don’t even care,
Is there a smile on your lips, I doubt.
O my divine love,
Your name I do not knew,
Aphrodite, I named you.
I wish someday I get you,
In some other universe, under another sky,
I would hold your hands,

And won’t leave them ever.
