Venus in porn

Defamed, defaced

with none to defend her

the goddess stands naked in this land

Defiled
she posses the minds of men

she has power over them

and can bend their will

to her whims

for this

she has always stood accused

because her power is far too great

greater than a direct order

greater than any man

greater than anything this world can to offer

as punishment

because the desire to have her

to possess her

to tame her

even to touch her

supersedes even the fear of death

beauty supersedes reason

because of this
I am helpless

Your beauty commands my full attention

it deserves veneration

this is the lesson of Uther

who sacrificed his kingship

for a night with Igraine

I would give at least as much

to be in your presence

statuesque, radiant

Venus, Diana, Minerva and Juno

you were divine in a lost era

before getting wrapped up

painted and hidden away

stamped out of existence

by the one true god of man

who, in His jealousy 

stripped you of your divinity

and made you a whore

when you are an equal

To a barren desert god

you were created as a companion

kneeling before your master

to take what he gives you

You have been denied your sacred roots

and amid such blasphemy

the goddess withholds her riches

and the symmetry of the eternal tao

is disrupted

power never stays separated for long

and we are overdue

for a spark, a strike

to restore balance

and expose the lie
