A Mortal Masterpiece

She sits before me, an infallible piece
A masterwork of bone, sinew, and skin
Defying perfection her fairest cheeks and feminine chin
Her form crafted and carved as a statue of ancient Greece

Lo! I would keep her hidden, a secret held unto me
Locked away to appease my most jealous heart
For it would cause a mortal cut if e’er we were apart
My soul she holds captive, her eyes contained the very key

But I could not withhold such beauty from the Earth
A prisoner to my selfishness, a fate yet undeserved
Her expert shape and classical features to all should be observed
Not all the gold of all the nations could match her shine or worth

So go my ornate masterpiece!
Go and share your radiant gleam
Go my Venus de Milo, my Winged Victory
And light the world with your achromic beam

    Like this. Lo is a bit fussy, and why capitalise Winged Victory? , but a solid piece of work.

    the poem is simple yet meaningful..Loving is not owning.Just let it go.He may be broke and jealous most of the times because of being far away with the girl symbolize by aphrodite or venus de milo, but he can be happier and wiser just by letting things happen.I also believe that if two people are meant to be..fate will find a way.

    It cuts. My Venus de Milo (from '43) died in '83.
