The Haunting Absence Of Her Beloved...

Wednesday, September 1, 2010
She awoke not to the darkness of the underworld but, the light that radiated from the sun. She sat up slowly, opened her eyes and gazed at her surroundings. She was in the field at Enna, the field she was in when Hades took her. An icy chill ran down her spine. She was now alone, and the absence of her beloved haunted her. “ Hades.” She said softly. When she stood she spun around in a circle. It was almost as if she expected him to be there with her, even though he wasn’t. At this point her mind was playing tricks with her. She thought she caught a glimpse of him at the edge of the field but, when she reached the place she thought she saw him, she came to the realization that it was a mere illusion. She looked down at the spot where the asphodel was. There was now a new flower growing in it’s place. It wasn’t the asphodel but maybe if she picked it, she’d tumble back to the land of the dead and back into her beloved’s arms.
