Doomed to the Myths

by Fiza Hasan
(Calgary, Alberta, Canada)

Doomed to the Myths

Reality crawls through the cracks,
aligning itself with the once healthy beat of fantasy.
Eos looks me in the eyes, the heavy weight of darkness
pulling me to the ground.

Money and fame slip through my fingers,
like sand in an hourglass.
I ask Atlas for help,
begging him to hold me up, so I can stand awhile longer.

I am offered a stab in the back,
condemned to the red sea.
I cannot fill the hollow depths of emptiness inside me
with Adrasteia, once more.

I am shackled under sea,
longing screams blend with the flow of harsh water
hitting against my skin.
There is no way I can stop the bleeding,
nor can I hold my breath any longer.

Knowing I am done for,
I smile one last time to myself.
A ghostly kiss is pressed to my forehead,
and I know, Azrael has blessed me.


Biography
My name is Fiza Hasan, and I am a Canadian high school student. I love
to write as much as I love reading. They come to me as does breathing to
a living thing.
