A mythical journey depicting the story behind Helen of Troy. Also a metaphorical representation of friendship, love and lust.

The Apple of Discord.

Heaven declared nothing but bliss upon Troy,
to which the apple did they attempt content.
Goddesses still weep at their naivety.
Evangelical rays of light, brighten up even the darkest
of escapades. The sunshine bearer could guide even
a thousand ships with her smile.
Luminating the depths of insecurity, anger and necessity.
She provides hope with her lucid vision, surely an asset,
an attribute. A gift unheard of.
Enticing the strings of life, continually recreating
the vessel that shapes our existence.
Her everlasting purity touches not only the roots of our heart.
Natural, the way she even rests her eyes.
The torch she echoes is omnipresent.
A gentle soul of wisdom and culture,
and a weaver of dreams and happiness.
If only they know, if only we knew, if only I could show her.
By Anand Mavani.
