The Three Fates

Poetry By: Nixie
Poetry



This is a story of the fates. I can't say anymore than that, I want to see what you all come up with.

A twist of fate
Steps up into the light
Her silent reprisal
Masked by an innocent vale
*
Hand steady as her words
Her foreplay begins
Her sax slaves the crowd
Claiming each in sight
*
At her muffled cries
Comes the snarling beast
Mouths hushing in fear
His mighty mallet falls
*
"The night bares witness!"
"The night was there!"
And cello stands to order
The stolen stars from my sky
*
After the second of the fate's
I step up into the light
"Their act was rehearsed"
I swallow in my misfortune
*
The fates, all three
Weaving cotton between their fingers
The sax, the cello
And now the humdrum beat
*
My night so empty
The mighty mallet came
And insignificant to the jury
My future love they said, awaits
