Today's muse: I went a little nuts today and used three of my favourite muses (musi?).
Three Word Wednesday.
Today's words: brandish, forbid, manage.
Carry on Tuesday.
This week's prompt: The opening lines from Phillida and Coridon.
One Word, So Little Time.
Today's (actually, yesterday's) word: console. And given the title role, so to speak.
* * *
Tangled in immoral haze,
Flesh and soul, lustful ways.
Wakeful nights and dreamy days;
To console, she bows and prays.
The mind and heart, each one vies,
Lusts for yon forbidden prize.
Spirit withers, passion dies;
Once the queen, no longer wise.
Brandished to the stormy skies,
Blackened soul weaves web of lies.
Releasing all that she denies,
Begs the gods to hear her cries.
In the merry month of May,
In a morn by break of day,
Water streams as body sways,
Manages to halt decay.
