Jack Benveniste '24


Her sight fades the rest of the world into oblivion

Her laugh vortexes through the space between us

Her smile, intoxicating, dangerously alluring, captivates me


Then and there, the only thing that matters is,



As the world blurs in my vision,

And the angels admire in envy

The gods turn and gaze


A sculptured of Aphrodite

With the will of Ares

And the power of Hercules


All being as perfect as can be

The sun enhances her glow

The moon highlights her features,

The curl of her dark hair,

The silhouette of her eyelashes painted on her skin


What lies ahead?

While in my eyesight


Nothing else can be seen

Nothing else matters.
