i've had my heart broken many times, but nothing can compare to this

her blood runs gold

dearest aphrodite,

from what will you ever pain from,
like i have?
you play your romantic games with
us,
the mortals,
only not to care when we suffer.
broken bones and broken hearts,
are nothing
but
quiet tears and wet pages,
suppressed
smothered
hidden.

is this what you intended?
to face a mortal-
a heartbroken, suffering
mortal stained with
gold,
your gold.
your life fluid.
your blood.

your little romantic games
have vast effect
on people like us.
we're fragile at our
very core.
heartbreak overwhelms us.
grief drives us insane.
fear can twist itself into searing anger.
but in a way,
we are strong.
stubborn
loyal
and vengeful,
until our very last breath.

i may be a human,
but i stand with
ichor
on my hands,
on my blade.
i will watch
as a river of gold
flows out of you,
then perhaps you will know
the true phenomenon
of pain.

    “broken bones and broken hearts,/are nothing/but/quiet tears and wet pages,/suppressed/smothered/hidden.”

    “a heartbroken, suffering/mortal stained with
    gold,/your gold./your life fluid./your blood.”

    Wow. This piece is really marvelous! Greek mythology is just so enchanting, isn’t it? :)
