    persephone was a poet.
    she collected flowers to turn into stories,
    asked lonesome travelers about their lives
    (so small) 
   
    persephone was a poet.
    she saw a tunnel so she took it,
    laughed the whole way down
    (just to know! oh!)

    persephone was a poet.
    she looked at all the lost souls,
    asked hades if she could stay
    (curiosity kills)

    persephone was a poet.
    she scribbled maps with a pink pen,
    poked her head into tartarus.
    (what if?)

    persephone was a poet. 
    she hated when her mom said no,
    enjoyed seeing the look on her face.
    (why not.)

    persephone was a poet.
    she ate the pomegranate in a bite,
    let the blood run down her chin.
    (nothing new)
