TURN OF THE DEMI GODS
Aphrodite syndrome is a real psychological study. I have been acused of living with this syndrome my whole life. I can only explain it as a love junkies experience or a travelers soul, always restless, always looking for the next journey, a heart in search of being kept, rescued or found. Thinking as a young women that I would out grow the urge to find true love under every eyelid then finding myself years later still roaming through eyelashes and only when I look into my own eyes do I feel the urge to not stop loving. I may never find the tall, handsome, avant gaurd, long legged, green eyed, comfortable soul but looking is the part of life that makes me alive. Loving, hurting, enduring, crossing the intersection at a red light, taking the risk of failure or rejection (YES!) this is what I seem to thrive on. Finding the same beauty in different people, hoping to meet one that produces the best of everyone you have ever slept with or just holding on to a feeling of acceptance given by a lover. Sometimes I feel alone, bored, enlightened, horny, appreciative or lonely but the possibility is always out there and the hope that one man can tame my hearts will to roam keeps me looking. Half god half human is not a syndrome or a curse it is just a look into a hopeless romantics voyage.
