the gods know writers island #6 unforgettable

sitting at a café

cappuccino

cool breeze

coming from the ocean

a voice that is undeniable

music in every syllable

Narcissus drawn from the center

Aphrodite and pulled in dissimilar directions

Pluto surrounds us

beams of light around your face

Thanatos death of a loved one

  9. I must be missing something. Very pleasant poem until the last line... Thanatos death of a loved one... Thanatos is death, right? It seems to me like pleasurable moments followed by a surprise moment. But that's not what I'm reading in the comments. In any case, a very touching poem.
