Venus

Sep 27, 2019

I am told to be the homeplanet of women… Their motherworld… Well of course… Who else would be capable of delivering such delight to the world but me?…,They named me the only way that suits my beauty, you know… After the goddess of love… And it is well deserved… Just look at me!… Have you ever seen something so beautiful as me?… I don’t think you did… I am surprised your eyes could withstand such wonder… Most would go mad, I am sure of it… Many people did crazy things in the name of Venus… In the name of love… It can be attributed to me just as to her… We are one… The very same… Don’t you see the divine in me?… Oh don’t be shy… You can tell me of course… We are very alike… Just as tears of love sometimes even my tears are made of acid… I have the best tan of all… I am looking at our celestial mother as much as I can and bath in her presence… Never take my eyes of her… Naturally, as you might assume I have many suitors but I wouldn’t let anyone near me… They are not worthy to be in my presence… They don’t deserve such honour… They can observe me from afar, thank you very much… And you now they are looking… Hello! My stop eying my farside all the time!… You see, being the only woman in the group that is worth something is a lot of pressure… I have to look spectacular all the time, but luckily I was born that way… I love my sister of course… But… She’s always so… Blue… Blergh!… Blue is such an ugly colour… I detest it… That’s why I never have any lying around… Soft brown shades, that’s my secret… But don’t go and blabber it out to everyone, okay?… They could never reach my level of beauty and I don’t want to see these other planets heartbroken… They just don’t have the style these poor siblings of mine… No wonder they have to occupy themselves with other celestial friends!… Only Mercury is confident enough to ignore others… But his proximity to our mother made him all kinds of weird… Little mama’s boy… I am just the right distance away!… Close enough to her, but still maintaining my freedom…. I am also very charitable… I like to give to the less fortunate ones… And what better to give than the joy of observing my radiant self… Like my poor sister, bless her heart… That’s the reason why I am the last thing you can see on her morning sky and the first on her night sky… You are welcome… I was so beloved and worshipped that people gave me not one, but two more names!… Their morningstar and eveningstar!… I was flattered of course, but to be honest, it was inevitable, wasn’t it… I am just too precious to have only one name… But my time is valuable… I cannot spent it all on you!… I know you would love that of course, but I have to be strict!… Everyone should have the right to listen to me… I cannot take that from the universe… It’s my gift to the world so to speak… I would hate to not give others the pleasure, really… So go… And next time bring my pictures I know you have… I will gladly sign them for you… No, no, I insist!… Well… What are you still doing here?
