I could write a song,
A hundred words or more,
Writing it down until my hand was sore,
And sing it to you all day long,
But would you love me evermore?

I would write a poem,
A thousand lyrics or less,
Thinking up random rhymes at a guess,
And then would I be as solemn,
Don't think my love is just a jest.

I should write an anthem,
A million letters at a time,
Working under the celestial chime,
And how heavenly would be the rhythm,
You'd say my love ought to be a crime.
Got to head off in couple of hours, so decided to write a random poem off the top of my head. And this is what transpired. Hmm, not bad... for an off the cusp, well most or nearly all of my poems are off the cusp.

Eros was the greek deity of love, the male offspring of Aphrodite, if memory serves me correct. Oh, Eros equivalent in the Roman sense is Cupid, but they just turned into him a cherubic child with a wicked sense of humour and a bow and arrow. Eros was more of a git in a sense. Greeks did it better Romans....eh.

I agree with your analysis of the Greek vs. Roman versions of this particular deity. I really enjoyed reading your artist comment! lol

Its so soulful. This is one of those poems that makes me feel like I'm in love with someone. Really good job. Seriously. I'm about to go propose to some random person. ok not really, but ya know.
