He Is More Than A Hero – Sappho

He is a god in my eyes-

the man who is allowed

to sit beside you-he

who listen intimately

to the sweet murmur of

your voice, the enticing

laughter that makes my own

heart beat fast. If I meet

you suddenly, I can’t

Speak-my tongue is broken;

a thin flame runs under

my skin; seeing nothing,

hearing only my own ears

drumming, I drip with sweat;

trembling shakes my body

and I turn paler than

dry grass. At such times

death isn’t far from me.

 .

( Sappho )
