The Three Fates

Poetry By: Nixie

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
