A Thousand Ships

A Thousand Ships

Day 8 of 30 Days of Poetry

A helm of classical style sits upon a stone wall, flanked by a short sword and gauntlets
The years could never burden one so fair
For such a timely fate is kept for she
Whose heart beats every day without a care.

Imploring all the gods in daily prayer,
I offer up my heartfelt selfless plea:
The years could never burden one so fair.

So with each living breath to you I swear
To save you from your brutal enemy
Whose heart beats every day without a care.

The face that launched a thousand ships did snare
The bravest heroes while she watched with glee:
The years could never burden one so fair.

But in the end we all become aware
And turn away, avert our eyes from thee
Whose heart beats every day without a care.

Your beauty is a gift you will not share:
You crush the fancies of each devotee.
The years could never burden one so fair
Whose heart beats every day without a care.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this.
