A Matter of Perspective

Top Story - June 2023

Delicately beautiful, she strolled through my space,

Interrupting my work, disrupting my pace.

Sensualities rose to fluster my mind,

Tantalizing my body and

Rerouting my time. ~~~~

Aphrodite, my lover, my goddess of bliss,

Cythera of Cyprus, I long for her kiss.

Time escapes, I’ve abandoned my tasks,

In her arms, caresses, and

Opulence bask. ~~~~

Notice from boss; “You’re fired.”

    This...is spectacular. All that beautiful language you used in the beginning and the way you swept us all away with your brilliant use of words, only to dump us with that kicker of a twist at the end. I certainly was distracted enough that I didn't see it coming. Well done on a thoroughly deserved Top Story!

  • Ahh I loved it! It was so visual and amazing and wonderfully done… and then the little twist at the end. That’s what happens with distraction! Great work!
