"Who is Erebus?"

Most people would think he's a God of darkness and sorrow. But to me, he is a character that saved me from going mental.

Erebus

by FA Paine

They called him

They called him the God of Darkness, the God of sudden Fear, but all he ever was, was a God of cruel tears.

Cold

His touch was cold, lacked the warmth, that only he craved, and couldn't feel.

Eyes

His eyes were black, alluring and not so sweet, but they had a spark, mischievous and full of nothing.

Demons

Even though a God, he had demons in him, resting inside his heart, abiding there today.

His one true one

His one true one is gone, resting beneath the Earth, her eyes the color of liquid, her soul the color of gold.

Lonely

He's so lonely, empty and blank, but his heart is open, yet refusing to let me in.

I

I am in love with Erebus, my blood pounds away, whenever he is near me, but he's far from my being.

Who is Erebus?

Erebus is a depressed God, I have chosen to write about, his darkness appeals to me, his past embedded with mine.

E R E B U S

Erebus is my other half, the only one I can relate. He is in my heart, yelling at me to bring her back.

This was a charming short story! It was ingeniously crafted and required high levels of creativity! But in the end you formed something so wicked and depressed, Erebus.

This was beautifully written. Your meter was down tempo but it was resonant. The words you chose were expressive of the dark side without being morose. Great poem!!!!!
