A Convenant (Hades)

by Mark   Oct 3, 2017


Hades, I implore you! Cut this zealous string
so that I may again laugh and sing;
a chorus to release, redeem and unfold
husky, wreathy sins of old.

A secret - this burden bared
fateful brawl - between two, one spared;
left in that ebony hole, and alive
retributed - a deadly kiss upon my wife.

My moaning name arising from the well
echoes an incessant ringing from a hell,
remedies explored and duly taken
I find like him - am alone and forsaken.

Not grace - would burn just to atone
light that I dare not lone,
Hades oh ruler of my destined place and doom
I offer this bargain - that I again may bloom.

Forfeit, I covet you forfeit my past actions
those binding to Erebus's fractions
in return - any job of your choosing
though vile, maiming or musing.

If failure, I bid you further,
let Cerberus feast me and murther
each torrid head ruling the kingdom
graze my remnants on your subkingdom.
