Tuesday is here again. Time for another tease inspired by a picture. The challenge is to write a tease - no more or less than 200 words. Here is what I'm sharing with you today. Enjoy!
©2012 Distracting the Muses – Cg Brumby #8
The Devil’s lively fiddle mocks with a melodious jig that’s cleverly designed to insult. I should have known better.
The irresistible invitation of temptation’s flickering flame set my path on this dangerous journey. Like Icarus, I flew too close. The flames destroyed my wings, consuming what was left of my figurative heart.
Now, I exist without feeling. A callous creature I have become. Cold and heartless is the façade I am forced to portray. Eternal life spirals out of control as I stumble through the ages, bereft of the human soul that once possessed my feeble bosom.
Recently, I dared to hope that all was not lost. But when my lover scorned my devotion, I lost the will to exist. My kingdom was once a bright, sunny, and peaceful place where life could grow and be shared.
Light has been lost forever; darkness reigns supreme. The wrath my fire brings will be cool as water compared to what lies ahead for those who walk where angels fear to tread.
A destructive beast burns within, who could ever love it? Only love can redeem me from my dark, hellish plight…
Startled, I drop my quill. My heart starts racing.
