Written by themanbehindtheglassMay 9, 2017May 9, 2017 Orpheus and Eurydice Orpheus and Eurydice It started with music So beautiful Matched by nothing Until he saw her Married, happy but temporary “Perfection is not made to last” Pursued by another she ran Far into the forest, to tragedy To the underworld Her beauty taken Mourning and shadowed in grief The music returned Beauty replaced by sorrow Moving all Living and dead On paternal advice Protected by Gods He journeyed to the underworld Captivating monsters and Gods alike Even Hades “You can take Eurydice, but one condition: She will follow but you cannot look back before the light Or she will be lost for eternity.” Ascending towards the world getting close But no footsteps could he hear Faith began to dwindle His mind raced He turned. There she was, standing behind He reached out but she was dragged back down Unable to return to the underworld again They were parted once more Grief filled him once more The decision was made The music turned into a call for death A call for unification The beasts began to circle The song rising “I wont be long, love” Have you left a seat for me?
