Lover of Venus

Venus, lovely, etched in stars
Your face: a flower blooming gold
Those eyes forever left a scar
To taunt me of a daydream old

Unreachable: your destiny:
To live forever beyond touch
Why, my love, that fate decree
While I pine for you this much?

A wheel of fate now broken lies
This tortured end so sorrow-clad
Still a voice within me cries,
"Why was it you I could not have?"

Still spellbound to this perfect angel's light
My heart laments, then fades into the night
