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.

And in Death

And there he was

His eyes 

Like dark black coals

Inside a familiar face, but not

I stared half in fear and half in excitement 

Then he kiss me

A first greeting in the night

I fell in love when I saw those eyes

And they followed me into my next life

It was my idea

To do the things we did

However awful

But of course he delighted in them

But I fear I delighted in them much more than him

Although I was human, not he

One day a comrade, like a brother to him came

He never spoke

But I knew what he said, mind to mind

And one day while sitting in the woods together

I looked over and I saw him

And I mean I SAW him

And who he was

And he saw me

And who I was

And we kissed

And fell in love
I loved both

But I chose one

And in the end 

The unchosen chose

To take me with him

Into death.

Familiar

What has helped me wasn’t a belief in something greater

It was belief in myself, something I discovered later.

Who came to me wasn’t just the light, but the darkness also called out.

For a life of suffering, for years, without a doubt

changes a person inside and out.

An angel said not to fear

and the demon said, “I’ll help you dear,”

So I took the lights advice

and greeted the demon thrice.

Once with a bow,

Once with a kiss, 

And once on the demons lips.
