An Ode to Eros

A lonely poet on Valentine's Day

An Ode to Eros

With love, I don’t know where to start

The dove, the wreath, the pair, the art

The beat beneath our feet - the heart

The heat that burns brighter apart


The world that turns in space and time

The melody and grace of rhyme

The walk, the run, the jump, the climb

The journey which is so sublime


The Transcendent upon your lips

The gold from up above which drips

Untold wisdom from long ago

Such secrets only sages know


And yet it seems that in this flow

This stream of dreams that golden glow

We speak the mother tongue of Earth

The flame that burns within the hearth


The spark before a love affair

The timeless spell of true love’s stare

Our souls mingle together there

Beneath the stars we are lain bare


Such songs we sing to serenade

The spirit of the everglade

She longs for each and every blade

For in its image is she made


So too do we reflect the sea

That wants to drown in us one day

And in our lover’s eyes we see

The mirror of the cards we play


For if two souls are meant to be

They’re always in the other’s way

Soulmates must share their destiny

And if they don’t, then come what may.
