Day 25: Based Off My Favourite Myth/Mythology

(I am such a mythology geek, I didn't even know where to start! I love all different sorts of myths from different cultures, particularly Greek and Norse mythology, but I decided to go with Greek mythology for this, with a focus on the myth of Persephone and Hades.)

She wanders the fields
where sweet flowers 
entrap the innocent
and summer was 
 swiftly taken on
the wheels of the underworld; 
she is given temptation 
to stay
presented in
tiny ruby red 
packages that bleed 
with sweetness 
and promises 
that she was never made 
for the light.
