Sonnet to Medusa

Bury me in your own eyes, For at last we are alone. No more does my love feed your lies; It just turns my heart to stone Bury me in your own heart, For now your serpent lust can't strike. Your glare will only cause me to part; Call it what ever you like. Bury me in your own skin, For you are only a reflection. A fallen nymph for my sin; A god's second selection. Medusa, my sweet gorgon love, Your beauty was taken from above.

    A very modern type of sonnet with shorter lines and a dark theme. It works well!

    In general Greek myth, Medusa was a nymph who had sex in the temple of Apollo with Poseidon, and in an act of vengeance, was turned into a horrifying gorgon. Hope that clears up the whole "beauty" thing.

    Actually it was Athena's temple. This is from Ovid's Metamorphosis
