Tarot Prompt ~ “Tell Me a Dark Story from Deep Within My Soul.”

There was a girl with seven legs

dark black eyes shaped like eggs

She ruled over spiders, her only companions

They understood her heart, like canyons.

Caught in a web of loneliness and despair,

she called out to them when she was feeling scared.

A gentle soul, a beautiful heart

Pisces was reflected in her chart.

She dreamed by day, she dreamed by night,

to escape the confines of her life.

She saw just how the others played,

while instead of joining she stood at bay.

But one day someone knocked upon her door

she creeped a peak, her eyes filling with adore.

She blushed,

her cheeks aflushed,

and gathered courage

focusing on her wordage.

He smiled kindly, poised refinedly

a friend she made, and with her he stayed.

But one dark melancholy night

he gave her a sudden fright

when he wailed her name

and to his bedside she came.

With wide eyes upon his gut,

crimson sheets, fluid continuing to jut

she pressed her hands firmly against his skin

thinking who could commit such a sin

he grabbed her wrist

eyes filled with mist

and said,

“I have always been dead,

but I’m glad I met you.”

and whispered adieu.

 

 

 

 

 

In the Dead of the Night

You saved me from evil

but you are evil

eviler than he and she?

not in my eyes

but in theirs, yes

was it wrong for me to summon you?

to call out to whoever was listening

for something to come and save me

good or bad

bright or obscure as they may be

partly out of despair

And partly out of hope

who would blame me?

and who would damn me?

they do not understand a life of constant suffering

not just out but in

inside more than anything

but you were in the past

and out of curiosity I called out to you again

because I had forgotten those memories long ago

will you help me once more?

or will you cause me unimaginable suffering?

My mind says the latter

But my heart says not

And my intuition

 although strong as it may be

fails me the moment I need it most

whatever I choose

I will always have you on my mind,

when I feel most alone

in the dead of the night.
