Danaë on the sea

May 25, 2021

Why? Why did you curse me with your lust?

You saw a locked up maiden

Needed to attain her

It was a must

 

I have been shielded from man by a prophecy

Sad and lonely in my cellar

Fear makes a prudent jailor

No courtesy

 

You appeared as a rain of gold

Raped me in my bed

Sentenced me to death

Just a clay to mould

 

Now I am floating on the sea

With your child

We were left in the Wilds

Can’t you see?

 

You did this to me

You did this to us

Killed us

How could this be?

 

Oh, Zeus almighty…
