You think you’ve got all this love to give, that you’re these decent dudes who just want a princess of their own.  And you’ll treasure her and worship her and never hurt her and ugh.  You get my point.  But I never get why you think that should happen.  Because you noticed that the prettiest, smartest girl in your class is in fact the prettiest, smartest girl in your class?  Good job, you, that doesn’t tell me why she should care.

Tragic
they call me.
Lost, forgotten.
My snakebite heart
growing colder
by the second.
My gooseflesh skin
greying ugly in the dark. 
So it goes. No matter. 

What awaited me
in the land of the living?
His hand creeping starved
between my thighs?
The sweet stench of rot
choking itself in my hair? 

Let me be honest here,
whisper my story in your ear. 
Let me tell you 
how I was silent as he turned,
how I never reached for him
as Death’s cold fingers 
curled around my waist,
how I wanted him 
to look back,
how I craved it
with all of my unbeating heart. 

Let me tell you how I chose hell.

—  Emily Palermo, Eurydice.

Inspired by the Greek Myth ‘Orpheus and Eurydice’ in which the topic of looking forward and backward is central to the story.

I was going to wait until winter, but since everyone else seems to be doing this, and since I have the feeling I’m not going to have as much time for Tumblr as I’d like for the rest of this semester…here’s my follow forever! You all are some of the best, smartest, funniest, kindest people I have ever known, and no matter how we met and what fandoms we share, everyone on this list (and quite a few people not on it!) is a beautiful tropical fish who has changed my life for the better and I wish you all the happiness in the world.

 Orpheus and Eurydice for sincerelysansa

Eurydice and Orpheus were young and in love. So deep was their love that they were practically inseparable. So dependent was their love that each felt they could not live without the other. These young lovers were very happy and spent their time frolicking through the meadows. One day Eurdice was gaily running through a meadow with Orpheus when she was bitten by a serpent. The poison of the sting killed her and she descended to Hades immediately.

Orpheus was son of the great Olympian god Apollo. In many ways Apollo was the god of music and Orpheus was blessed with musical talents. Orpheus was so sad about the loss of his love that he composed music to express the terrible emptiness which pervaded his every breath and movement. He was so desperate and found so little else meaningful, that he decided address Hades. As the overseer of the underworld, Hades heart had to be hard as steel, and so it was. Many approached Hades to beg for loved ones back and as many times were refused. But Orpheus’ music was so sweet and so moving that it softened the steel hearted heart of Hades himself. Hades gave permission to Orpheus to bring Eurydice back to the surface of the earth to enjoy the light of day. There was only one condition–Orpheus was not to look back as he ascended. He was to trust that Eurydice was immediately behind him. It was a long way back up and just as Orpheus had almost finished that last part of the trek, he looked behind him to make sure Eurydice was still with him. At that very moment, she was snatched back because he did not trust that she was there. When you hear music which mourns lost love, it is Orpheus’ spirit who guides the hand of the musicians who play it. (x)
