queen

queen
not even zeus himself
can free persephone
from hade’s arms entirely.

i ate the fruit,
a most unfilling supper,
and now am yours forever.

i knew not what i did,
just a girl just a child,
to make, your heart beat wild.

i wanted you to take me
tempted you with poetry
with eyes and lips and honey.

i eat from your table
and come to your bed
the living queen of the dead.

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2.5 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. My most recent completed endeavor was finishing BA's in Religious Studies and American Studies. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
