House of Cards
Wands, no longer shelter, but now an unsteady foundation, tremble from the weight above. The Pentacles insist it is not about money, but the Cups and Swords are all reversed and I cannot change the signs.
The Empress stands on her head, her wand dangling from her hand. Her smug look says she knows. Knows I have failed.
The Lovers remain apart. They don’t even attempt to link hands. The Moon, once my friend, now taunts me.
The Fool, blind to it all, brazenly walks off the cliff, beckoning like the pied piper. I yearn to follow him, to plunge into the unknown.
End it all.
Let the house crumble, I say, leave the Sun forever buried. The only card left to play is the Tower. And still, I cannot leap with the others.
Instead, I will let the inferno consume, until there is nothing but ash.
