Medusa

2nd day of NaPoWriMo, I went with the prompt – to write about a character of Greek / Roman mythology. My first thought was of Medusa.

From en.wikipedia.org

Medusa

Medusa, Medusa, where is your head?

Perseus now has it, now you are dead

Turned to stone; all who looked on your face

 Statuesque testimonies to your hideous gaze

Vipers slithered and fought as your life-draining hair

Too ugly for even your own monstrous stare

You defiled your own being with your jealousy and hate

Your demonic self-love driving your own ill-born fate

Though born beautiful, your jealousy raged

In a fit of betrayal, Athena’s weapon was waged

No longer a maiden of beauty and lust

Now a reflection of evil, that turned all to dust

All the others who knew you longed for your death

Aspiring with Perseus to plan your last breath

The battle was set: with wings, shield and sword

Gifts from the gods, your death their reward

The atrocious remains of your head rest on a shield

Athena the barer, you; the weapon she wields

No more hatred from your mortal, volatile soul

Just a remnant of mythology, and ugly, dark troll
