Life is crazy hectic right now, but I couldn’t resist joining in the annual fun of Be Kind ReWrite’s VOICE WEEK!
In the first year, I wrote a realistic piece taking place at a wedding.
In the second, I dove into the Underworld with some classic figures of Greek mythology.
And this year, I’ve looked at something different again…
Head over to the Voice Week website to read some other great pieces! For now, I hope you enjoy my first voice.
.: Once and Future :.
At night, I dream of the throne that should be mine.
The adorning velvet does little to ease the hardness of the seat, and thus I sit rigidly, clinging to the armrests like a child would a log in a river.
And then I awaken, and that river is all around me—freezing me, drowning me, pulling me into the darkest of depths. I reach for my throne, but it is gone, and I am once more left with nothing. Nothing but hatred, which I cradle warmly in my chest, stroking the flickering tendrils that seep protectively across my heart.
The nightmare will be quashed until the sun goes down again.
