A tribute to Hera, and all those who have been betrayed by love

A tribute to Hera, and all those who have been betrayed by love


Fear the woman scorned and betrayed

For her anger is as vast and unending as her search for vengeance

Like snakes entwining a baby

Her words twist and writhe

Trapping in a web of lies

Until your mind cannot quiet the doubt of your heart

And then you will burn

Burn in the glory of god that you cannot withstand

Burn as her hearth never will again

For her fire is gone cold as the heart resting in her chest

Jealousy stings her as though a gadfly

Chasing her to madness

Death and pain come behind her

Justice forever forward, out of reach

Her soul twists into darkness as she is wronged again and again

None shall find a place of rest, a time of peace

Until her shame is erased, her forgiveness is begged,

And her love and hearth are lit once more.
