On Mythology And Heroes, Part One Medusa, monster hideous beyond comprehension

On Mythology And Heroes, Part One Medusa, monster hideous beyond comprehension All is there within Medusa's abhorrent gaze hiding in black-realms wherein monsters daily graze beyond that abyss, the roaring of aching screams from there impossible to see sun's golden beams pathways, hideous corridors painted with blood where dead love and dying dreams may forever flood! Eternal night, chambers of horror and wicked glee gripping fears that causing its victims to flee deeper into tangles of that consuming maze 'til desperation stones heart, gifting pain's lost craze all blades of dark in her evil vicious stare depths of unmerciful cold- of that icy stare! Hopelessness, terrors searing into all within casting stony shadows into hearts of lost men warriors sent to slay that so cursed to monster be set as solid stone as they look at her to see Fate such victims into her monstrous abode cast evil incarnate, beast that set men's souls aghast! All is there within Medusa's abhorrent gaze hiding in black-realms wherein monsters daily graze beyond that abyss, the roaring of aching screams from there impossible to see sun's golden beams pathways, hideous corridors painted with blood where dead love and dying dreams may forever flood!

I love to write about mythology, but always in an ambiguous way, weaving it through my modern-day experience and emotion ... I wish I had the courage to take it head-on as YOU do, Robert, but I am not secure enough in my knowledge to do so, so I write precariously through these wonderful pieces! Keep up the great work!

Thank you my friend. As midnight spoke this poet listened. The monsters in Greek mythology and the heroes brought to me in my childhood point to the truth of the dark that hides within this world as we oft walk blinded by our own ambitions and desires.

Deep and dark into that abyss you dove my friend. Well done as always. Look forward to the next edition...

A very dramatic poem, my friend, with great imagery. As always, dark theatre at its finest. Fave.
