Prayer to Medusa

by Roka

Age Group: Adult

Prayer to Medusa

Standing at the temple, a smile on your face
Kneeling at the feet of Athena
Truth of the tabula rasa
Burning passion in your gaze

Lurking in the shadows of his own plot
Lord and master of the storms
Did he sickly love you?
Maybe... maybe not

Fascinated by what he was denied
Obsessed with your beauty and your youth
Was it your beauty or your pledge?
Or did he just want for the light in your eyes to have died?

Dawn of realization
Everything is lost
Will Athena hear you?
Maybe... maybe not

Your cries were met with hatred and a damning word
She asked what you have done
“Am I not innocent” you inaudibly sobbed
I hear your silent scream: Maybe... Maybe not

That day was born the gorgon
That day consumed by wrath
No man dares approach
Lest he become part of your harem

What if you were cradled?
What if you were loved?
What if they approached you, without intent to harm?
Would you fight your nature?
Or are you too far gone?

Alas a brave bruiser, with a dead shield and sword
Destroyed my lovely maiden
Have you been redeemed?
Maybe... maybe not

Eyes of passion, eyes of hate
Kept locked away, behind an iron gate
If I close your eyes will you let go?
Maybe not... maybe so

So alike are you and I
If I go quiet I can hear you cry
Take my hand
Let us fly

Number one
Number two
Number three
Number four
I denounce you all
Tartarus will consume them all

I look into your eyes
Kiss you softly on the lips
We’ll meet again in a next life maybe
But for now we are free

Wisps blowing in the wind
No physical form to age or die
No body to get burned or scarred or ruined
Was that a spark in your eye?
Maybe... maybe not
