There You Were

There you were, a goddess in human form, and there was I, a mortal with a heart of gold. And so the dance started- a frenetic race to conquer each other’s heart. Who could have known how far it would go, who could have known you would fall madly, insanely in love with me, an impoverished student and lover of life.

I have thought of you as the literal incarnation of Aphrodite. Your beauty, your charm are immortal and divinely renowned. And everyone knows you love me. You speak of me all the time. You cry about our famous separation.

We are meant for each other, pure and simple. And I will love you, always, no matter what.
