In Love

I called you perfect Aphrodite
Not that you were any perfect
Love for you made Proverbs 10: 12
Only you knew too well
Verity behind Proverbs 15: 17
Enduring all and becoming a Proverbs 5: 19

I wronged you repeatedly
Not once, you taught me that Proverbs 17: 9
Lovingly, you showed that Song of Solomon 2: 16
Obviously, Song of Solomon 8: 7
Verily you Songs of Solomon 8: 6
Ephesians 5: 33 I shall adhere to

Indeed, I shall endeavor to follow 1 John 3: 18
Nearing perfection as 1 John 4: 18
Love you until you gasp Song of Solomon 1: 2
Over the years my lover has been like Genesis 29: 20
Vanity it is not to practice Ephesians 5: 28
Everlastingly appreciating 1 Peter 3: 7

I will, for you, live Colossians 3: 19
Never forsake you for I know 1 Corinthians 7: 3-5
Loathing others according to Proverbs 5: 20
Only you will I Proverbs 31: 29 and be Proverbs 5: 18-19
Vehemently confessing Song of Solomon 4: 7
Endlessly I know our Hebrews 13: 4

Is the Krishna in this poem referring to the incarnation of the Lord Vishnu? I wish I understood this.
