       I've always been interested in Cassandra... I always feel so bad for her, poor girl. The mythology is a little skewed in this, but hopefully any classics purists out there won't take offence.

    Make the font bigger!! Double Spacing Back to recent posts.


    What was she thinking when she saw him there,
    Arrogant, as the visions had foretold?
    Why did she, tumultuous, uncontrolled
    Cassandra, so utterly solitaire
    And unapproachable in her cursed
    State, not attempt to outrun destiny?
    Him coming, this was not quite unrehearsed--
    Screaming nightmares had glimpsed this villainy,
    Haunting, kaleidoscopic prophecies
    That left her shaken with self-pity and grief.
    They turned her mind into cemeteries
    Filled with all who'd turn away in disbelief.
    She, to burn Apollo's gift from her mind,
    Followed Agamemnon, their fates entwined.

      Hmm I'm not quite sure of the story of Cassandra, but I believe your poem and withered_lily's comments helped clarify a bit. I liked all the language you used... brand-spankin'-new vocabulary words, but not too outrageous that I had to look them up.

      this made me want to go read about Cassandra! i am not a purist about anything, so don't worry about me. i like reading poems that are based on myths and legends. this is well done, and i want to read it a few more times so i can let it sink in.

      ah, the last too lines are bliss.

    salve caelum! *grins at sky* habeo stellam. *sigh* just like cassandra. she had all the words, but no one listened, just as the sky will never hear my teasing.

    i liked it in the sense you established her as a character apart from everyone else. she's pretty much following her own thread here- definitely dig it.

    ah well, write on my friend.
