Aphrodite

She is beauty personified, goddess of unending love;
Her lips speaks of desire and of undying love.

She winks to the sunny sky and breathes the morning air,
Walks amidst the splendor of a purifying love.

But mortals have shaped, altered, and clouded,
Of what she once deemed as gratifying love.

They cradled what’s tantamount to treachery and deceit,
Dimmed the lights to the road of a terrifying love.

Some old souls, however, continued to believe,
In the true charm of Aphrodite- a mystifying love.

Another out of town that called for an absence in the blogosphere. This is me catching up to NaPoWriMo. Here’s for Day 15. XD

Day 15: Because today marks the halfway point in our 30-day sprint, today I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that incorporates the idea of doubles.

Wake me

Inspiration Call - Creative Talents Unleashed 8

Wake me
Let my skin radiate with your every single touch
That the stars shining above would shy away from my iridescence
And the moon—grand and dazzling— would smile at us
Make my thoughts run wild as I curl inside your arms
Dreaming, wishing, and hoping that forever it will be you and I
Let me fill my head with stories and memories of us
Wake me
Let my smile reach from ear to ear as I wake up by your side
Staring at those enticing deep brown eyes, breaking through my senses
I would love spending my every waking day with you
Let me greet the world with love, hope, full of faith and see the beauty
Even in very little things; make me believe that goodness still exist
Allow me to believe that I am strong, smart, and beautiful
And when I have risen from the ashes like a phoenix
And have danced round the fire like a moth
Let me thank you for waking me.
Thank you for waking
The beauty inside
Of me.

Burning Fire

Today I saw a maiden—her skin so fair and long blond hair scream of a youthful beauty; those rosy lips and blushing cheeks best the darling buds of May. But if I have to say what I truly see, it’s beyond a splendor that declines. For I have seen the burning fire boundless by death or time. I see her wound that left a scar and forever will leave its mark. I hear the sound of shattered glass ringing in my ears. And how her touch is a warm proof of how she fought the pain she bears inside. Today I saw a maiden—she prayed that I, too, be fearless and will never ever hide.


I love reading and listening to prose and spoken poetry though I’m not really good at both. So here goes my attempt to prose poetry with a blend of internal rhyme for our Writing 201 Day 3 assignment. 🙂

Prompt: Skin
Form: Prose Poetry
Device: Internal Rhyme
