Like Gwynevere at Avalon
or Sibyl in the adyton
you captivate with mysteries
compelling hearts to fall upon
whatever thirsty blade you please.

Hellenic eyes to spur a fleet,
the lure of Cleopatra’s sweet
exotic charm is your perfume,
which makes the strongest seek defeat
to catch a whiff beneath your bloom.

You’re Venus, you command the sky,
a beacon no one could deny;
I’d gladly cross the roughest sea
enchanted by Ligeia’s cry
to worship you eternally.

Whether as a poem or as song lyrics, this piece seizes me like a spell would . Enchanting through and through, like the women mentioned here.

Love it!

Cheers. ^_^

I think hero should be redefined as those whom escape from heroines. Beware brother beware ;-)
