In the total darkness, I lie motionless, we both in blankets on my friend’s floor. There was not a sliver of light because Brian had started painting all his windows black. I could not even see your dark form, Rena. Minutes passed with out me taking a breath. I could not believe I found the courage to reach out to you. My hand found yours, waiting for me, longing for me, you just wanting someone to hold you and make you feel safe because you were alone in the dark. All alone and a thousand miles from home.
There was a magnificent sensuous spark! The energy that flowed trough our fingers rivaled what God and Adam are forever doing in the Cistine Chapel. There was an exchange of life. A divine spark. There have never been two hands like ours that came across the void, the abyss. And there was an explosion. A cosmos was born! I came over you, found your lips, and gave you such a kiss.
All of a sudden, you have turned me on my back. I feel your legs like pythons wrap around my calves and pin me to the floor. Before I can react, you have grabbed my wrists and are holding me down. If only I could see you, behold your beautiful face. I feel your mound of Venus press tightly against me. And, then, you come for your kiss…..on your terms!
Aries and Libra, Fire and Air, a hundred and eighty degrees across the universe, we found each other. So ready to love, and be loved.

ARES was the great Olympian god of war, battlelust and manliness.
Like most of the gods, the majority of Ares’ children were only linked to him with the briefest of genealogical references. Most of these appear to have been assigned to his paternity merely to emphasize their brutal and warlike natures. Some were the mythic founders of certain (historical) noble and royal houses, such as Queen Harmonia of Thebes and King Porthaon of Kalydon.
The quotes on this page are merely a collection of odd genealogical references. For actual myths featuring Ares, his loves and children, see the Ares Loves and Favour pages.
