Apollo 2.0

Trials of Apollo: The Hidden Oracle (p.240)


she doesn’t need
eros’s arrows
nor athena’s wisdom
nor nemesis’s crossroads
to know that she falls
for him
harder
than god of the sky
for hera
deeper
than god of the sea
for amphitrite
better
than god of the underworld
for persephone
well,
she doesn’t need them either
to know that her story
will wind up
like apollo’s
eventually
he’ll walk away
just like daphne
leaving trails of cloud
for the god of the sun
saving what remains
'cause her story
is hyacinth flowers
still blooming
still growing
yet still bringing
the shadowy figure of him

-yas.




p.s. just another perspective about apollo
for the 'happy' one kindly check this out
