Shadows of Tartarus

Death is feared by humans, it consumes them, I want to tell them it not that bad, there's a nice river with a less than cheery ferryman but Hades isn't that bad, he's a crap dad but he's nice enough.  Everyone seems to think that Persephone would hate it in the underworld when in reality she likes it, sure it's kind of dark and there's dangerous creatures that could suck you soul out through your eyes but they don't.

If you ever need me

A sea of black suits later and Aster stands alone; he needs to go back, to remember.
The pristine waves lapped over Aster's feet as he curled his toes into the sand, a reminder that he was living.

Together

FREE WRITING

They lived in my head
I let them stay
They let me live 



We fought with fire
With feelings
With all we had 



They were all I had
Until you came
You handed me the sword 



I have myself because of you
I have my freedom
Strong, that's what you made me

Through fire burning

My tears will fall 



Hear my prayer
Pain is all I have
Fear is all I know
Take the pain
Take the fear 



Take what's not mine
It was never mine
Through this pain
Through the fear
I will find my home

Just to confirm I have walked this way before and I have been fine. This time however there was a bull in one field. It was chunky, and had these...
