Tiny Stories: The Lips of Death

Popular belief has it that the universe is comprised of atoms. In reality, the universe is actually made up of…

The cruel hand of Fate stole you too soon from this all too fragile life and driven to desperation by your absence, I embarked on a fool’s errand, for I am forever a fool for your love, down to accursed Hades in search of the dreaded psychopomp for a solution to my heart’s devastation.

A bargain was struck, and know, beloved, that I showed no fear and no regret when I fell to my knees and kissed the lips of Death itself in order to bring you back, thus damning my soul to be cast into the pit of Tartarus for all eternity.

Enjoy your second chance at life, my sweet, and know that regardless of what happens in your future travels, you are loved.

  1. Rhyan,

    The next time you write something so sad and touching, please make sure there’s a tissue box attached at the end.
    This is so so sad, yet so so brave.
    I don’t know what to say.
    I think your words and feelings are above any reaction.
    They are pure and beautiful.
    Thank you for sharing this… 🙂
