At The Temple Of Aphrodite…

In a mystical dream the other night

I stood before a mesmerizing sight

Maidens of beauty of  different tones

Laid on stairs of ancient stones

Covered in rays of golden silk

Skin as soft as honey and milk

Pearls made of magic and light

Hang between breasts fully ripe

Amber and musk filled the air

Scent of lust to those who dare

Dazzled I was in my dream

Around me felt incredibly real

A shiver ran across my spine

As I felt a hand touching mine

A calming voice whispered to me

“Come along I’ll make you see”

” A place where few of men have stepped”

“A love divine you’ve never felt”

 “Surrender your soul just for tonight”

“And I Promise you heaven at the temple of Aphrodite”

    Bet you can’t surrender your soul for just one night! You made the temple too enticing for one night. At some point you’ll have to give up lust to find love.

    So did you have the courage to go? How come I never have intersting dreams like this one? But I enjoyed your poem and look forward to the one that tells what happened when you accepted the invitation. By the way, was this a dream or fantasy? 🙂
    hugs, pat

    Lovely poem 🙂 I’ve always loved this painting.
    You wouldn’t happen to know who painted it, would you?

  28. Sarah Adams says:

    so shall those that seek love truly find it….lovely

  29. You manage to blend very nicely the magic, fantastical quality of myth with the physicality of this sensual scene. Good work. The rhythm and rhyme work quite well to carry the building tension of the story.
