Once in a land far away,
was a woman
she knelt to pray.
she prayed for a child who could be
the key to a new dawn of ages.
The baby was conceived
by union of bodies
by lustful souls.
The scrolls foretold the child would grow to be
a pawn in the game of prophecy.
A peacemaker of the goddess
Her diamond, glowing bright in the sky
but there would be a price to be paid
not all the cards could be played.
The son could never know
how it should play out
or his mind would be full of doubt.
When the child was in his teens
daydreaming in front of computer screens
his father asked him what he knew
of the Goddess dressed in blue?
The boy replied and sighed
everyone knows the story
of the man the white rabbit prince.
The peacemaker between heaven and hades
the lover who rescues his love from the flames
but who’s heart can never be tamed
or be told because he would go mad
end up sad and old,
and not being able to fore fill the will of the goddess.
Then the father began to stress
the sons importance nevertheless,
the son had an inclining his dad wasn’t letting on
the full story.
So he had to find one
he looked and looked
and searched and searched
down dale and over birch
became a scientist
He didn’t believe in any more stories
of space and time
myths and legends were not on his mind.
Until he met a woman
beautiful and free
a spirit of life’s mystery.
She would tell him stories
read him verse
he fell in love with her
so much worse
than ever a man has fallen before.
What he didn’t realise is she had depression,
it was her curse
even with his love it seemed
to get worse,
the stories she told
grew ever more dark and bold
until she took her life.
But not before he had taken her for a wife.
Meanwhile the world had become full of strife
wars and famine sapped Gaia’s life
the Earth was failing
it’s life support System grew weak.
But the man was too aggrieved to notice
he wouldn’t go outside
his love lost he could never hide
as the world was falling apart
so was his heart.
