Eros: Love of the body

Eros is the Greek God of love and sexual desire. He shoots golden arrows into the hearts of both mortals and immortals without warning. Eros is defined as divine beauty or lust. Lust has been given a bad name. It is not one of the seven deadly sins; lust is the delightful sexual attraction we feel for another that leads to love. Eros is where the term “erotica” came from. The Greeks feared this kind of love the most because it was dangerous and could get them into trouble. As conscious human beings, we have to weigh the pleasures of erotica with the love desires from the heart and the thoughts of the greater good from our soul.

Be Careful my Heart

My heart takes the blame,
but my body is the culprit,
It seeks love in all the wrong places.
It leads me down a dangerous path
that is laden with pitfalls
for my heart
that wants so desperately to be loved
that it will follow the desires of my body
and trade safety for a kiss.

Oh be careful my heart
for love does not necessarily lie here.
Passion has tied you together
with my body’s physical desires.
It has taken control of my mind
in the pursuit of bliss.
It has forced my mind and heart
to carelessly create bonds
to satisfy its wants and needs.

Lead my heart, lead.
Do not follow.
Seek the moment
when your love
can snuggle into the embrace
of another heart
and into the hopes
and dreams
of another soul.
