An Imperfect Aphrodite

You are tired, my goddess

Worn and eroded by goodness

Blemishes only enhance your beauty


We weather together

Though life erodes

Love deepens


Now you have forgotten me

Your empty orbits chiseled

Limestone eroded by a sea foam of tears

Your memories pulverized in smoking fissures

Luminous through vacant spaces


We weather together

Though our bodies wither

Our love is onyx

Our imperfect love

Sublime in stone
