Medusa

Medusa

Ravenous serpentine kiss
Toxic tis enticing bliss
Eyes awash malignant heat
Vows spew malicious deceit

Bones of mortals embossed
Sown souls an infinite cost
Coils of slithering amass
Malevolence comes to pass

Cold tis a heart disguised
Calcified in time highly prized
Stoic beauty, pillars of salt
Lest ye stare no blame to fault

Accursed to damn or be killed
Apathy for virtues fulfilled
Delve into depths if dared
Mercy tis utterly spared.

Immense and as mazing as usual, how is it despite her ravenous ways and the danger she represents she still lures me in lolΒ

Awesome. Creats a vivid picture in my mind of the old Clash If Titans film. I'm sure they'reΒ  many vain women out there like this also. Especially in the realms of reality TV. I hate that shit.

Well written.

Hi Lisa....Blame it on the empath in me, but I have always felt so sorry for Medusa...as she herself was cursed for her beauty and out of jealousy.....and doomed to cause death to any one who looks upon her....I guess that can make her a bit mad....lolΒ  I love the old Greek myths so much...You captured her doomed state well.Β  xo ;)
