       Now complete. Told from what I imagine to be Medea's point of view. Or at the very least, I was trying to imagine what Medea would say... if she had my writing style and spoke English.

    It might interest mythophiles to know that the earliest myths of Medea had her children not being murdered by Medea, but by an accident of Medea's or a "Hand of Fate" kind of thing where Medea felt guilty.

    To be continued. Hopefully.

    dots[my] medean lullabyedots

    (such a whisper in the west-
    i thought it was the north at best!
    carry an ankh upon your heart
    forget that they told you you were blessed
    and in my doddering, cane-ripe age
    I feel the need to take leave of the stage
    but I must sing the spirits back to Hades
    and scare them from my soul for another night)

    Lift the stones and cast them down
    Call "roses" and let the petals drown
    Pieces of me,
    left behind; tiny shards of a bond
    only gold could unwind

    (Only gold and the healing touch
    of a quester I loved too much)

    Sleep peacefully, Aeson, renew your life
    and thank your son when you awake
    that Atropos and her plutonic knife
    have yet your soul to take

    (Atalanta, warrior woman, sleep mighty
    and rise up with the help of Hecate!)

    And you, Pelias, please watch your skin
    when your daughters clean the cauldron you're in!
    Slumber like the creeping crustacean you are
    a boiled lobster who fell in love with a witch from afar

    (I love too much I love too much I love too much I love)

    Sleep, Creon's child, burningface
    done in by your own bridal lace
    join poor Absyrtis with your crown-
    that searing golden Hades' frown-
    There are those that yet call me a bitch
    but woe to she who steals a lover from Hecate's witch!
    Hell to her that holds another's man on three legs and a broomstick

    Creon, King I never meant to kill
    I pray that peace is with you still
    Walk upon those abyssal plains-
    but watch the ground for your child's bloodstains

    Children of mine, sleep blissfully
    Grandchildren of the star who seduced Icarus
    and melted his wings at the height of his bliss
    Morning flowers, doves of the dawn
    fled my darkness when the sun was gone
    Accidental casualties in this war of insanities
    Dream rocking-horse fantasies and poppet frivolities
    Imagine the world that Fate stole away
    and wait for me, my guiding lights,
    until the hagiarch, awaited day
    exorcises my lifethread's night.

    (such a whisper it the west-
    would that it was the north-I'd be blessed
    and as I sing my ghosts to the river of forever
    i feel it's the last time I'll undertake this endeavor)

      I think this is a well written piece, I watched the movie "clash of the titans" the other night so all of the mythology mentioned herein appeals to me on a greater level. The only word that did not quite fit so well was "[censored]" haha, it stood out somehow, alone in this piece. All in all I quite enjoyed it. :)
