CassandraThe misfortune of having eyes which see!Cassandra by PrettyCrazy
However hard it must have been to those who lost their house,
their spouse, their kin and their possessions,
in that long drawn moment of horror,
that one prolonged shriek of terror of the burning town,
how much harder must it have been to them
who knew what was awaiting!
As she had always done.
But never could she have believed
that fate had much worse in store for her –
the capture by the enemy,
the great man with lion manes,
with silver armour capturing the sun
and blinded both her eyes:
the earthy and the unreal.
The capture –
the capture and the long journey,
on foot, walking behind his horse,
seeing the justice in his eyes,
hearing the wisdom in his voice,
the grandness in his posture.
The wishing to die for him-
was it just to be released
from the life of shame and dishonour
or was it really out of love?
AriadneOh nobody ever sung about this, in their epic iambs,Ariadne by PrettyCrazy
about a girl, too young to be swept away from the house of her father,
finding herself in the blink of an eye on a naked beach.
White clothes torn, in the still-warm sand
the figure of the man who brought her here,
that man with his golden hair as rays of the sun
which warmed the ponds where she used to wash
her brothers' clothes with soft soap
and even softer hands, which does not now warm
her stiff body, which does not now melt
the frozen blood nor the salty tears,
lining as pearls the innocent lashes.
No nobody ever sung about this, how the wind
blew in the sails of the leaving boats,
and how the beasts howled in the woods where she found herself.
How she missed her mother, and the laughter
of her friends, but more than that missed the man who loved her,
and left her, leaving her the company of her own
bereaved thoughts, where the world turned upside down
and the gods turned their back
on their loyal followers on earth.
No she was
