Day 18: The Daily Post – Mythical

Mythical

Myth: noun – A widely held, but false belief or idea.

I believe in love like I believe in stories of Medusa, of Perceus, of Icarus.

Love is a story told in a hushed whisper,
believed for as long as the darkness lasts,
wiped out by sunrise and rationality.

Hero – he breaks his sword on masculinity.
Heroine – she walk the ground of feathers and complains of sore feet.
Villain – jealous lover, typically.

Beginning
Middle
End.

Same story a thousand times over,
told so much the audience groans
at the narrator for

something new.

Love isn’t new.

Love is older than the Greek Gods themselves.
