I fed her
pomegranate kisses

and she cried
at every frozen sunrise
for 180 days.

With cracks in my heart
and souls
caught in my hair
I counted 180 more.

In which the author writes about mythology and gross, disgusting love.

Written for :iconwordsmiths-guild: 's Inner Divinity Contest.


For those of you who don't know, Hades/Pluto is the Greek/Roman deity of the Underworld. He kidnapped Persephone and brought her to his home where she ate four pomegranate seeds. According to the Fates, one who eats the food of Underworld must spend eternity there, but Persephone was allowed to return to her mother for half of the year, corresponding to the spring/summer months.

I can't really think of something complex to say to praise this. So please accept a "this is really well-written" instead.

I love its simplicity and how it contrasts the complexity of the context :3
