why must beauty come from blood? | #tellastory

August 14, 2019

aphrodite trips over her own divine feet, tumbling to the consecrated earth. she rushes through the brambles, the ichor of her blood staining her holy limbs. pain is foreign to the gods as death; they are the embodiment of everlasting life - then are they not dead from birth? she falls upon his mauled corpse, even apollo's caduceus could not heal such a wound. she curses the boar that killed her lover, but artemis' hounds have already fallen upon it. her tears fall upon the torn brambles; a red rose blooms.

soldiers fall and poppies rise on the heath.

    your Greek gods and goddesses stories are always a pleasure to read, I love when you wrote pain is "foreign" to the Greek gods your wordings are PERFECT. The only thing I ask is if this is on word limit, because it is very, very well handled if it is.
